One week ago, firefighting couple Dawn and Bob Brown took in a mastiff after a family member decided they could not handle the dog anymore
. This week, Bob came home from work and found his wife dead after she had suffered bites to the neck from the dog. The family members who had previously owned the dog never had any previous aggression problems with the dog, just that they could not handle the size of it anymore. The couple also have a pit bull and a boxer mix. All three dogs are currently under the care of animal control.
