Elkhorn, NE-  A 7-year-old is at home recovering after he was attacked by a neighbor's two Rottweiler dogs Tuesday night. 
 
According to a police report, Gage Olson was attacked after he left his house trying to catch up to family members who were taking a walk. 
 
The boy made it home where his father found him in the family's driveway where he collapsed and was bloody. His father then took him to a nearby hospital.  
 
Gage has several injuries to his scalp and has a wound above his eye. He was treated and released from the hospital. 
 
The Nebraska Humane Society's Mark Langan says the dogs went through the invisible fence surrounding their yard before the attack.
 
Langan says both dogs were taken into the humane society's custody. The dogs are licensed and current on their vaccinations, and the owners are cooperating.
