Miami Herald Writer

An elderly woman attacked by two dogs Monday was in good condition at Jackson Memorial Hospital, Miami police said.

The incident took place at Northwest First Avenue and 44th Street after the woman walked into a neighbor’s yard. The neighbor’s two dogs lunged at the woman and bit her “several times around the face,” said Miami police spokesman Willie Moreno.

Police are unsure of the breed of the dogs.
