SPOKANE, Wash. - The dog that attacked an 8-year-old last week in north Spokane has been deemed dangerous by SCRAPS. 

"Girl," the brown pitbull that attacked the little girl and two other people trying to help her, was deemed as a dangerous dog, while the other dog involved in the attack, a black lab/pitbull mix named "Demon" was deemed as a potentially dangerous dog. The owner has signed an owner release for "Girl," but both dogs are currently in the custody of SCRAPS. "Girl" will be put to sleep, and "Demon" will be returned after a 10 day waiting period. 

The owner, 45-year-old Kathy Southern, was also served with criminal misdemeanor charges for having a dog with vicious propensities and civil infractions for a dog at large, a dog with aggressive threatening behavior and a dog with no license. The misdemeanor charges carry a maximum penalty of $1,000 fine and 90 days confinement. The civil infractions are a monetary penalty only.
