A MUM who was bitten 25 times during a horrific mauling by her own American Bully says she still doesn’t believe the dogs are dangerous.
Stephanie Jones was left devastated when she was forced to put down six-month-old pet Chase following the attack.
The 32-year-old has been left with chunks missing from her arm after she was repeatedly bitten. While in hospital, she caught serious skin infection cellulitis.
Despite her ordeal, she says not all dogs are the same – and her other Bully is gentle with her three children, who are aged four, five and seven, パラグライダーのジョナサンビショップは、彼が着陸したときに、2匹の怒り狂うカンガルーが彼に向かって競争しているのを発見しました

It has led some to call for Bullies, which are not recognised by the Kennel Club as an official breed, to be banned under the Dangerous Dogs Act.
Despite paying £3,000, she was refused entry to the breeder’s home, and did not meet the dog’s parents.
Stephanie told the paper: “He literally came out to me by the car, passed the puppy through the car window and promised to send all the paperwork in the post and I never received anything.
“I’ve learned my lesson.”
On the first night Chase was home, the dog had a seizure-like fit and was rushed to the emergency vet. When Stephanie alerted the breeder, she was asked if she wanted to trade the puppy for another.
As she began to ask questions about his animals and the outstanding paperwork for Chase, she alleges he sent “threatening voicemails”.

As Stephanie grabbed Chase, it savaged her arm.
She said some people are “shocked” that she kept her other Bully after the attack, but insists: “You can’t tar them all with the same brush.
“She’s literally my best friend. If I thought anything negative about this dog I wouldn’t have her round my children.”
