LIVERMORE FALLS ME - FAMILY'S PET AMERICAN BULLDOG/HUSKY MIX ATTACKED THEIR 18-MONTH-OLD GRANDSON AND THEN ATTACKED THE GRANDMOTHER AS SHE TRIED TO SAVE THE BABY
HERE'S A PICTURE OF THE DOG - PIT BULL/WOLF OR AN AMERICAN BULLDOG/HUSKY - THEY SURE LOOK A LOT ALIKE TO ME !!!!!
UPDATE: GRANDMOTHER EXPLAINS THAT HER GRANDSON WAS ATTACKED BY THEIR AMERICAN BULLDOG/HUSKY MIX IN THE HALLWAY AND THAT HER HUSBAND HAD BEEN BITTEN BY A STRAY DOG SEVERAL DAYS BEFORE
Police say they responded to a call from a home on Route 17 for a dog-bite incident Saturday morning. Reports say the Pit Bull/Wolf Hybrid Mix had been locked in a room and quarantined the previous day by the town's animal control officer for undisclosed reasons.
Apparently the doorway of the room in which the dog had been barricaded was low enough for the child to peer over. The dog grabbed the child by the head and pulled him over and began to maul him. When the parents ran to the aid of the child, the mother was also attacked. The dog was euthanized following the attack and will be tested in Augusta.
On Sunday the child was still in surgery with severe facial damage. The mother will undergo another reconstructive surgery to her arm.
