(AP) CANANDAIGUA, N.Y. - A 75-year-old school bus driver in western New York is being credited with fighting off two pit bulls after they attacked a woman and her family's dog as she pushed her grandson in a stroller.

David Bliss tells Rochester media outlets that he had just dropped off his last group of students Monday afternoon when he saw Cynthia Devaney and the 10-year-old golden retriever being attacked along a road in Canandaigua.

The stroller with the grandson inside had been knocked over by the time Bliss pulled over. He jumped out of the bus and beat the dogs until they backed off, but not before being bitten several times. Devaney and her family's dog were also bitten. Her grandson wasn't injured.

Police say the two pit bulls have been quarantined.
