RICHMOND, VA (WWBT)--We have a follow up about Ozzie, the Boston terrier that was attacked by a pit bull several weeks ago.

Yesterday a judge ordered the pit bull be declared as vicious. The judge also  ordered the owner to pay restitution .

Ozzie was attacked by a pit bull named Henessy that was being walked near Ozzie's fence.

The Boston terrier has had to have several surgeries, totaling nearly $2,500.

After receiving financial support from the community, Ozzie's owner has planned to donate extra money to an animal rescue shelter.
