Jimmy’s daughter, Belynda Lindsey, said it was a miracle that her father survived the violent attack. The Los Angeles resident had to undergo numerous surgeries to repair the damage done to his arms and legs. Medical professionals have even mentioned that Lindsey could lose her right arm. Lindsey further stated:

“I was (dragged) back and forth across the lawn like a rag doll. I thought my life was over, yes I did.”
He added:

“They are murderers. They are a hideous type of animal. I would not want anyone, but no one, to go through the pain that I am going through day after day.”

A neighbor took the initiative to free Jimmy from the dogs after Lindsey was knocked unconscious. The dogs fled once the rescue team reached the scene. The Lindsey family is trying to recover from Jimmy’s horrible physical and emotional damage.

When told that the owner refused to give up the dogs, Belynda said: “That the owner says no, that you are not going to take my dog, and that they give you a court order, that for me is evil.” She further mentioned that there will be a hearing to decide the future of the dogs.
