Laval police spokeswoman Evelyne Boudreau said Thursday the victim’s life was not in danger but that she suffered numerous lacerations to her body and possibly a broken arm.
Officers arrived at a home and found the victim in a state of panic, moments before the dog began attacking her again.
Boudreau said officers tried to subdue the animal but failed and were forced to kill it.
Police couldn’t name the breed of the dog but said it belonged to someone who knows the victim.

Laval police fatally shot a dog after it repeatedly attacked a woman Thursday afternoon.
The call came in about the dog attack around 1:45 p.m., during which screams could be heard on the other end of the line, a police spokesperson said. When police arrived on the scene shortly after, the dog approached and began biting the woman a second time. After multiple failed attempts to get the dog away from the woman, police said they tried to gain control of the animal by tasering it.
They said the taser had “no real effect on the dog,” so they shot and killed the animal. The woman suffered bites to her foot, leg, arm and hand, with a possible arm fracture. She has been brought to hospital, and police said they are waiting on word of her condition.
An investigation is underway to determine exactly how the events unfolded.
