Woman Attacked by 150-lb Dog

By November 7, 2017Personal Injury

In Somerset County, New Jersey, a woman recently suffered broken bones, had part of her ear bitten off, and required 60 stitches after an attached by her neighbor’s 150-pound dog.

The dog apparently charged at the woman when she knocked on her next-door neighbor’s door.  Her injuries include a broken hip and broken fingers.

The dog that attacked her is a Dogo Argentino, also known as an Argentine Mastiff.  The dog was taken into quarantine by animal control.

The dog’s owner was issued three summonses, and a notice was filed in court to request a hearing to determine whether the dog is dangerous.

On November 15, the judge will decide if the dog should be euthanized.  In 2016, the same dog bit a man’s calf, which left him with a large laceration that required four stitches.
