A Calgary court has rejected an appeal from the owner of two Pit Bulls to keep the animals from being euthanized after they viciously attacked a woman earlier this year.

The dogs have been held by Calgary Animal & Bylaw Services since April when they attacked Wendy Smith as she stood at the front door of a house in Applewood.

Smith lost a portion of her nose in the attack and has undergone extensive reconstructive surgery to fix the damage to her face and leg.

A judge ordered the dogs destroyed during a hearing last spring, but their owner, Donna Tran filed an appeal with Court of Queen’s Bench to overturn the decision.

Tran and her brother were fined $3000 for the attack.

Tran is also facing charges in connection to a cocaine bust in the city back in July.
