Dog accused of attacking 3-year-old girl taken to animal shelter in Montgomery Co.

UPDATE: FOX 26 has learned that the dog involved in the incident has been taken to the Montgomery County Animal Shelter where a hearing will take place. 

We're told the hearing will be held on Friday, January 22 at 9 a.m.

The mother of the girl who was attacked by the pitbull said that charges have not been filed against the dog's owner. 

The Harris County District Attorney is reviewing the case. 


"No mother or parent should have to see her child in that situation," said Cleveratta Gordon Waldroup.

She says her best friend and her 3-year-old daughter Robin were the first to enter the Loose Caboose in Old Town Spring

Waldroup says a woman had a pit bull on a leash that was wearing a service animal vest.

"He grabbed her by the face and he shook her and I saw my baby hit the ground like a little rag doll," Waldroup said. "The first thing my best friend did was grab her and put her in my arms."

While Robin’s mom ran her into the restroom, her dad, James Waldroup, ran after the woman who took off with the dog in tow.

"And she turned around took her mask off so I could see her face and yelled at me it’s my daughter's fault," said James Waldroup.

A cell phone video shows the woman getting into a car as Waldroup screams at them to stop.
