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. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
