The family who owns the Mansfield, Mass., hound/pointer mix who bit a six-year-old little boy, has opted to have the dog put down following a second attack.
According to Sunday's My Fox Boston, the dog, named "Milo," attacked a member of his own family over the weekend.
In the most recent incident, the victim was a 16-year-old girl named Allison Bailey. The teen was sent to Hasbro Children's Hospital for serious injuries to her face and ankle.
After witnessing Milo's attack on Bailey, the family has come to the conclusion that the dog suffers from some type of neurological abnormality. The family noted that Milo's eyes "changed" right before he attacked and that he "wasn't Milo anymore."
Milo bit six-year-old Christian Herbert back on Jan. 3, causing severe trauma to the boy's face. Nobody, aside from the child, witnessed that attack.
The dog was ordered to be destroyed by a board of selectmen just last week. Prior to this weekend's attack, Milo's family had intended to file an appeal to save their dog's life.
Right now, Milo is being held in quarantine at animal control.
