A woman stands to lose her beloved pit bulls after a deadly attack.

On Wednesday, there was a hearing at Clark County Animal Control offices regarding Ann Marie White's pit bulls.

Last month, the owner of a Chihuahua says White's pit bulls attacked and killed her dog. When 13 Action News first broke the story near South Las Vegas Boulevard and East Richmar Avenue, the neighbors got into a heated argument.

White did not show up at Wednesday's hearing. Clark County officials say White's dogs are now deemed dangerous. This means she has 14 days to follow a list of orders or else the dogs will be confiscated and possibly put down.

"Since my dog died I've been hoping for justice and I actually got it today," said Nicole Garcia, the owner of the Chihuahua.

But White said she needs her pit bulls.

"They're my only friends. I'm paranoid cause I'm bipolar and I don't trust nobody. They're the only people I trust is those dogs," said White.

Some of the conditions set by Clark County that White has to follow include building a fence for the animals and getting permission from the property owner to keep the dogs on the premises.
