Kashila Chintamunnee claimed she was planning to walk her dogs through Melbourne's Pakenham yesterday morning, when they raced out of her property.
She said her Dachshund, named Coco, approached a leashed dog, believed to be a Staffy, and was attacked.
Kashila told the Cranbourne Leader: "The dog had bitten too deep into Coco's main vessel as he had lost that much blood - I was drenched in his blood that's how much there was.
"This dog shouldn't be on the streets."
She blamed the woman holding the Staffy, however that woman has spoken out.
The Staffy owner has told the Daily Mail: "The other smaller dogs were attacking my dog and they kept snapping at him, that's when he got hold of one of them and I couldn't get him off.

"There was no one in sight, I tried to take the dog off.
"The owners didn't realise the dogs had escaped and I told them to get a bucket of water because I couldn't get my dog off [the other dog]."
The mum has explained that she tried everything she could to stop what was unfolding and that she was also trying to protect her son in case the trio of dogs came from him.
Kashila accused the Melbourne woman of walking off after Coco was attacked, but she says that is painting her like a villain.
"They said I walked off but I had to get my son home and I didn't know what to do - they didn't ask how my son was or anything,' she said.
"They left the garage open but I was the bad guy and I was the one with my dog on the lead."
Kashila has contacted the local council and Victoria Police about the matter, insisting her dog was innocent. She posted photos showing the dog was buried under a bed of white roses.
"You will truly be missed my beautiful baby Coco, no words could ever describe how beautiful and loving you were,' Ms Chintamunnee said on social media.
"You were not an animal for us you were our family our first little fur baby of the family. You will forever be missed and loved but never forgotten.
"You'll always be with us no matter what."
