ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A woman whose three dogs attacked and killed a neighbor’s Maltese has testified that she doesn’t believe her dogs are a danger to the community.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1TKvSoh ) Maria Escamilla testified at a city hearing Monday that her three dogs, two pit bulls and a boxer, who all still live at home are happy, playful and haven’t gotten loose in the Ventana Ranch neighborhood.

In April, the owner of the Maltese, Jack Cash, had been walking his dog near Escamilla’s house when the three dogs came up and attacked it.

Cash says that Escamilla never apologized or offered compensation for the attack.

Officer Willard Davis Jr. will determine in 10 days whether to declare the dogs as dangerous, which will put restrictions on Escamilla and her dogs.
