A Buena Park family was left grieving after a coyote broke into their home and killed their 10-year-old Maltipoo, Sally.
Murphy, the family’s other dog, was also attacked and is currently fighting for his life with multiple bleeding wounds.

As per dad Scott Goodling’s account, the coyote had sneaked in through the doggy door and immediately preyed on Sally and Murphy.
The tiny Sally was dragged away through the same doggy door while Murphy collapsed from his wounds.
This is Murphy’s second coyote attack, and the family is looking at $2,200 in surgeries for his recovery.
The scary part is that the neighborhood has reported many pet-attacks in the past few weeks, and it is feared that a pack of coyotes are running free in the area.
Many security camera footages have also reported coyote sightings.

Like Sally, a neighborhood cat was also killed by a coyote in the recent past. Authorities have now come forward with public warnings asking the people to remain vigilant and keep all entries to their homes locked.

Authorities believe the habituated coyotes have lost fear of humans and will continue their killing spree.
They have requested families to keep their pets indoors, especially in populated desert areas like Southern California, Las Vegas, and Phoenix.

10 Of The “Most Loyal” Dog Breeds On The Planet
Giving love and support to humans is something that some dogs do better than others.
While many dogs love everyone they meet and are willing to take treats or belly rubs from anyone, the pups we found are just the opposite.
These 10 dogs are some of the most loyal breeds on the planet. They are rock steady in their loyalty to their owner no matter what.
When the American Kennel Club (AKC) lists loyalty to describe the temperament of the Akita, you know they mean business. The beautiful double-coated working dog of Japanese ancestry is considered hardwired in protecting those she loves. They should be socialized with other dogs and people from the time they are puppies. Their silly, fun, but dignified personalities round out the loyal Akita.
This working dog is smart, full of energy, and oh so loyal to their family. They get along great with kids and have an innate instinct to protect their pack. He’s a watchdog with a heart of gold who oozes dedication to his owner.
