Pit bull attacks woman taking a shower

An elderly Florida woman was attacked by a pit bull Friday while she was taking a shower.
What? No doors on that bathroom?
Joan Brown Benitez was at a neighbor’s Howey-in-the-Hills home using the shower when several dogs entered the home through a doggie door and one of the dogs, an 18-month-old pit bull, attacked her. It was unclear why Benitez was showing at her neighbor’s home.
The 73-year-old was rushed to a nearby Lake County hospital with cuts and punctures on her arms and legs, the Associated Press reported.
The dog, named Marley, was turned over to animal services and will be euthanized after a 10-day quarantine if the owner does not reclaim it. A female pit bull living at the home also was turned over to animal services.
The dog’s owner, James Rhew, told police the dog went after his neighbor because he was not familiar with her since she had been in his home only a couple of times.
Maybe a handshake first would have helped.
