BEND, OR -- Authorities cited a Bend-area dog owner after they say her animals attacked a woman, Thursday morning. According to the Sheriff’s Office, Joy Stanovich-Brown was walking her Dachshund-Chihuahua Mix on-leash on Groff Road, east of Bend, at about 10:30 a.m. Two Boxers escaped their fenced enclosure and went after her dog, "Rudy." She picked him up, which shifted the focus of the attack to her.

 
Stanovich-Brown ended up on the ground, where the attack continued until a passerby pulled her and her dog into a car. She was later taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries; Rudy also required vet care. 
 
The two suspect dogs were located and identified as a 7-year-old male named "Marshall" and a 1.5-year-old female named "Brandi." They were impounded and are being held at the Humane Society of Central Oregon. Their owner, Jean Straight, was cited for Animal Nuisance, Animal at Large, and possession of an unlicensed dog.
