(Newser) – Rachael Ray fears she may have to put her beloved pit bull to sleep. Isaboo, a frequent guest on Ray's talk show, has been attacking other dogs while on walks and becomes aggressive even on a leash, Radar Online reports. The dog ripped off another dog's ear in the latest incident early this month, according to the National Enquirer.

A vet was able to save the dog's ear but Ray, whose husband paid all the vet bills, is reportedly devastated by its aggressive behavior and fears Isaboo may eventually attack a person. The dog has been involved in at least four other violent incidents with dogs, including a fight 3 years ago when Ray's hand was bitten as she tried to intervene.
