Patty was a friend and one-time roommate of Miranda's. Miranda needed assistance with her dogs and wanted a personal friend to care for them when she was away. Patty was a perfect fit because of her relationship with the dogs and knowing their demeanor. Patty traveled to Miranda's to care for the dogs and in a split second her friend heard her screaming as he approached the kitchen he witnessed Patty's nose ,lip , cheek where being held in the dogs grip by its teeth. This left Patty to be rushed to the hospital by ambulance and in the hospital for over 3 days. Patty will need at least five more procedures just to repair her nose.
