Dallas College Student Sues Dog Owners after Mauling Leaves Her Permanently Disfigured

Jacqueline Durand, a 22-year-old college student sued Justin and Ashley Bishop, seeking more than $1 million damages after the Bishops’ two dogs mauled Durand on December 23, 2021, tearing off her ears, nose, and most of her face below the eyes and leaving puncture wounds over her entire body after removing all of her clothing. The Bishops had hired Durand to walk their dogs while they were on vacation and reportedly failed to notify Durand of the dogs’ dangerous propensities. The dogs attacked Durand immediately upon her arrival at the Bishops’ home and have since been seized by the City of Coppell Animal Control, where they will be euthanized. Durand is still hospitalized at a Level-1 trauma center where she is undergoing multiple reconstructive surgeries.
