Corpus Christi Animal Care Services has released new information on the five dogs that mauled a 15-year old boy who was walking home from school last week.

They tells KRIS 6 news they've identified the dogs breed as American Staffordshire Terrier Mix.

All five were picked up from their home on Friday two days after they attacked the Miller High School student. According to Animal Care Services the boy was on the 400 block of Old Robstown Road near Driscoll Middle school Wednesday afternoon when the dogs attacked him.

The injuries were so bad, the teen had to be hospitalized.

The dogs will be quarantined for ten days to see if they have rabies.

No word yet on whether the owner will face charges in this case.
