Deputies said Wildwood police Officer Douglas Pelton let his K-9, Doki, run around in the backyard of his home about 6:15 p.m. Sunday. The young girl, Julianne Goodridge, walked up to the brush-covered fence and reached out to pet Doki. When the dog lashed out and tried to bite her, she quickly backed away from the fence, but Doki leapt it and through the shrubbery and attacked her, a report said.
