Enzo's owner has confirmed that he was been released from the hospital and is doing better than expected. He is peacefully resting at home and eating his favorite meal, chicken.

There's been a report that a suspect may be identified, but edhat has yet to confirm this.

For those who wish to help with medical expenses for Enzo, a gofundme account has been set up to help.

Several edhat readers wrote in on Thursday afternoon to report a vicious dog attack that took place in the Rose Garden of the Santa Barbara Mission.

According to witnesses, a woman was playing with her 6 pound leashed dog, Enzo, and another small dog around 1:40 p.m. when a much larger dog attacked.

The larger dog, described as a three-legged tan pit bull, was off leash and reportedly grabbed Enzo by the neck and began shaking him. After a while Enzo's owner was able to free him when the larger dog took off with its owner.

A woman who witnessed the incident reports, "[Enzo] had its neck almost completely severed. I stepped in, told her to wrap him in my beach blanket, grabbed her other dog, and rushed them to my car. Meanwhile, the guy sped away. Almost hitting parked cars."

Enzo's owner, an out of town visitor, reports his neck and left cheek were torn open. As of Thursday afternoon he was in critical condition and was being prepped for surgery.

Witnesses on scene report the owner of the large dog is an Asian male in his mid-20's. He was driving a VW wagon with partial plate numbers JGH065 or JQH.

The owner of Enzo is asking anyone who has information of the three-legged tan pit bull and its owner to contact the Santa Barbara Police Department.
