A hairdresser who was working in the home of a client finds herself with her nose torn off after she was attacked by a pit bull on March 17, 2022. The dog, which belongs to the client’s roommate, did not was shown aggressive at any time prior to his attack. Ashley Unger, 31, was left with a severed nasal septum and cartilage and can no longer breathe through her nose, reports the Mirror. Doctors say Ashley will need multiple reconstructive operations and will be scarred for life. Apart from the huge scar on her face, Ashley suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder.
Ashley says she was at her client’s home for about five hours the day of the dog’s sudden attack. She also confirms that she had cuddled the dog. “He was on my chest and I was cuddling him for an hour before he attacked me,” she says. It was as she was about to leave through the front door of the house that the pit bull ran from the kitchen. The hairdresser crouched down to prevent him from going out.
The hairdresser’s nose, including flesh and bone, fell off her face
“I didn’t touch him, he was about 30cm away from me, I heard the meanest growl of my life,” she said. “The next moment I had my nose hanging down and I was clutching my face. It was the worst pain I had ever felt.” Following the attack, Ashley screamed like she had never screamed in her life. The dog then let go. “I screamed like my life depended on it, he broke away from me and all I know then is he’s in the corner on the other side of the room, the customer told me said not to look, but of course I did, I saw a bone,” she said.
