BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Bismarck border collie who wound up severely hurt after fending off two loose dogs has been euthanized by his owners.

Jane and Ron Veitz’s dog, Chance, wound up in surgery in September after the two dogs bit off one of his ears and severed the other ear. Chance had multiple bite wounds on his torso and head.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1ygrTUf ) the 10-year-old dog had a successful surgery but was still having issues walking. The family told the paper Chance would’ve also had to have another surgery on his hip.

The Veitz are still waiting to see if the Bismarck city attorney will bring charges against the owner of the two dogs.

Jane Veitz says they have more than $2,000 in bills because of the incident.
