Puppies from home of fatal dog attack going to Texas

Posted: Updated:

Eight puppies from the home of two dogs that fatally mauled a Michigan jogger will be sterilized and taken to a Texas shelter.

The cane corso puppies have been in the custody of the Lapeer Animal Control Shelter. The two cane corsos involved in the July 23 attack on 46-year-old Craig Sytsma of Livonia in Metamora Township were earlier euthanized along with another adult dog from the home.

The owners of the dogs, 44-year-old Valbona Lucaj and her 45-year-old husband, Sebastiano Quagliata, are charged with second-degree murder.

A hearing to determine if the case goes to trial is Friday.
