Still no leads in tireless search for crazy Pitbull, police on lookout for brunette in Toyota Corolla

Quincy Police are at a standstill in their search for a black Pitbull that has been accused of biting the face off of local old-timer, Alf Nelson's, Belgian Sheepdog.

The incident occurred in the early morning hours on Saturday, while Mr. Nelson was walking Peppy, his former prize-winning show dog, on Quincy Shore Drive, at which point he claims a mid-nineties Toyota Corolla pulled up and opened it's passenger side front door, unleashing a black Pitbull, who proceeded to maul his dog's face until he was able to finally fight it off using his abnormally large collection of keychains.

According to the National Database of Former Prize-Winning Dogs (NDboFP-WD), Peppy was the 1993 gold medal winner of the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.

Witnesses described absolute chaos as Mr. Nelson's dog was nearly torn to shreds.

"It was like a scene out of Jaws," remarked Carlton Snapley, an out-of-work day laborer who was still up from the night before. "I hadn't seen that much blood since my last divorce. All I know is this: at the beginning of that fight, both dogs had faces. But, by the end of that fight, only one had a face. And that's just the plain and simple truth of it all, and there's nothing anybody can ever do to change that."

Though all who bore witness to the gruesome scene agreed that the owner of the Pitbull was a Caucasian female with brown hair in her late forties, some disagreed about the color of her getaway vehicle.

While some say that her mid-nineties Toyota Corolla was tan, others say golden.

Quincy Police are currently offering a firm handshake, as well as three buckets filled with respect, to anyone who provides information leading to the capture and execution of the Pitbull in question, although have stated on multiple occasions that a reward of monetary value is "not in the foreseeable future."

"This attack is no different than the dozens of others that occur every decade in this city," said Officer Nico Haylen. "These dogs have had it too good for far too long."

Authorities are asking anyone who sees a brunette female in her late forties and/or a mid-nineties Toyota Corolla to please contact them immediately at 617-479-1212.
