Phoenix woman attacked by her own dogs

A woman was taken to the hospital after she was attacked by seven dogs at her home.

Two families reportedly live in the house near 83rd Avenue and Indian School Road.

Maricopa County Animal Control says seven dogs got into a fight. When the owner tried to break it up, she was bitten several times on her arms, legs and hands.

Six dogs were quarantined. The seventh was surrendered to Animal Control.

Melissa Gable with Animal Control says, "Whether it's two or seven dogs you should never try to get in and break it up yourself."

The woman is expected to be okay.

Another of the dogs' owners was also bitten but refused treatment.
