A wheelchair-bound woman died after being attacked by her own pit bull dog early Friday, Baltimore City police and the victim's daughter said.
Terry Douglass, 56, suffered fatal injuries after "Boosie," the four-year-old male pit bull that she had raised from puppyhood, attacked her around 12:45 a.m., according to her daughter, Tamathia Davis.
"She loved that dog unconditionally," said Davis, who said this was the third time the dog had attacked her mother.
Douglass, of the 2000 block of E. 30th St. in the Coldstream Homestead Montebello neighborhood, had cerebral palsy and had been using a wheelchair for the past two years due to knee and back problems.
Although Douglass hadn't previously been a dog lover, she quickly grew attached to Boosie, Davis said.
