RICHMOND — A couple is suing the owners of a dog that allegedly attacked them and killed their dog.
Rickie and Diana Herring filed a complaint Jan. 7 in the Fort Bend County District Court against Enzo and Laura Valenzi alleging negligence and strict liability.
The plaintiffs allege that on April 7, 2018 Rickie Herring was attacked and bitten by the Valenzi's dog named "Whiskey." They claim that during the attack, their dog was killed by Whiskey and that Diana Herring was injured while trying to save her dog after the alleged attack.
