They have 18 available dogs up for adoption listed on their web page. 14 look like and are listed as some sort of pit bull mix. 3 other large dogs with other descriptions, but 2 of those I doubt. 2 small dogs aren't capable of sending a kid on a life flight. I wonder which of these put that child in the hospital????

As per the Harford County Humane Society's FB page, the dog in question was an Irish Wolfhound mix.

I'm not sure why that really matters, but since the family has requested that their privacy be respected, I'm going to guess that we'll never know. I would also guess that this dog is, at the very least, no longer available for adoption, so you won't be find its picture on the website. There is no more information available on this, so all that is known is that a 6 y/o boy was bitten by dog while at this shelter. His injuries are described as "serious but not life-threatening". Any other speculation would be irresponsible.
