Hull was learning to walk, according to Painter, and he liked the show ‘Cocomelon’ and also the nursery rhyme YouTube channel ‘Little Baby Bum.’
Painter said, “A’myrikal was a very happy baby. She just had these big beautiful eyes and a smile that would light up the room.”
The dog was a female pocket bully, which is a cross between a pit bull and a Patterdale terrier mix, according to Painter. According to ABC6, the dog had never been aggressive toward people or other animals, according to Painter, “The dog was like her best friend.”
Family members requested anonymity, but a close relative has set up a Go Fund Me page to raise funds for funeral costs.
