When Longmont resident Anne Kelly set out to walk her dog in early December, she didn’t know it would be her dog, Isaac’s, last walk.

As Kelly and Isaac walked around the Golden Bear neighborhood southeast of 17th Avenue and Pace Street on Dec. 5, suddenly, a loose French mastiff dog ran up to them.
The mastiff “was so fast, all I had time to do was turn around and try to run but he bit into the rear end of my dog and started shaking him,” Kelly said. “I grabbed the leash and tried to pull him away but I couldn’t do anything.
