A college student’s dog-sitting job turned into a nightmare when she was viciously attacked by the owner’s dogs, leaving her permanently disfigured.
A 22-year-old college student named Jacqueline Durand was offered a dog-sitting job by a doctor and his wife. Durand thought it would be an easy money, but things took a turn for the worse.
The doctor, Justin Bishop, told Durand that his two dogs were nice and not aggressive, so she agreed to the job. However, this turned out to be untrue, and the dogs attacked her, causing her to lose most of her face below her eyes.
It all happened on December 23, 2021, when the doctor and his wife were away from home. They had hired Durand to take care of their two dogs while they were away, and they promised her that the dogs would be locked up in their kennels. However, when Durand arrived at the house, she found the dogs roaming the property and in attack mode. The dogs viciously attacked her, nearly killing her.
Durand has now filed a lawsuit against the doctor and his wife. According to the suit, as soon as she entered the home, the dogs jumped on her and attacked her as though they were trying to kill her. The dogs tore off and ate Durand’s ears, nose, lips, and most of her face below her eyes.
Durand’s lawyers claim that the doctor put her in danger by not crating the dogs as promised. The dogs were allowed to roam freely, and they attacked Durand as soon as she entered the property. The Bishops knew that their dogs were dangerous, and they even posted a sign on the outside of their home that said, “Crazy dogs. Please don’t knock or ring the bell. Call or text instead.”
The dog attack was so violent that it knocked Durand to the ground and caused her to drop her cell phone. The dogs tore off all of her clothes, including her blue jeans, so they could get to the flesh underneath. If it wasn’t for a neighbor hearing the attack and rushing to her rescue, Durand would have likely died.
Durand is now seeking more than one million in damages, and the lawsuit against Dr. Bishop could go to a jury trial. Durand had previously been to the doctor’s home to meet the two dogs and to get comfortable with their routine, so she could take care of the animals while the doctor and his wife were out of town. But in the end, Durand was left with a traumatic experience and physical injuries that will last a lifetime.
