Recently, a 2-year-old girl required transport to Andalusia Regional Hospital in Andalusia, Alabama for the personal injuries she sustained after being attacked by a dog.
Andalusia Police Chief Wilbur Williams said that the girl was visiting friends of the family at the time of the attack. He said that the girl apparently got down in the dog’s face and it bit her.
Williams said that the dog was up to date on its shots, but still required quarantine because it bit someone. The dog will be held under observation for 10 days at the Andalusia Animal Clinic before being released.
The APD reported that the girl sustained significant lacerations of the upper and lower lip after the dog, an Irish setter, bit her. Irish setters are not a breed typically associated with attacks.
