    A man attacked by two pitbulls was saved by his two sons late yesterday.

    The attack happened yesterday afternoon along South Oakland Street in Arlington. Max Fornada says he got out of his truck in front of his house and the pitbulls -- which reportedly belonged to neighbors -- charged.

    When he tried to scare them off his property - he says he was bitten at least a dozen times.

    That's when Fornada's son ran out of the house and threw a shoe at the dogs to scare them off.

    One dog was killed by police and the other taken into custody by animal control.
