Lockhard was home when all of sudden she Michelle was trying to get in the back door. 

"I said what happened. I saw blood on her leg and she said she just got mauled by three rottweilers," said Lockhard. 

Lockhard called 911 and Mosely was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

One dog was taken to the Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission where it is being held in quarantine.
