Dog that attacked 2-year-old won’t be euthanized

ATTICA, N.Y. (WIVB) – A dog that bit a 2-year-old girl from Attica on the face will not be put down.

Emilee Amrhein needed stitches after the dog latched onto her head inside an apartment. A judge ruled the dog will not be put down but the owner must pay to have the dog micro-chipped, neutered and physically controlled around children.

The animal belongs to a friend who was staying with the family and it apparently attacked while the girl’s mother was eating as it made an effort to get at the food.
