German Shepherd Attacks Again in Philly

Posted on: July 19th, 2012       Attorney Thomas Newell

A July 11, 2012 report on detailed a second dog attack by a German Shepherd in as many months. The day before, an elderly woman tried to protect her pug as the vicious German Shepherd was in full attack mode. The attacking canine was running loose and unrestrained in Philadelphia.

The PA dog bite victim was bitten on the breasts, arms, thigh and lower leg. She received medical care at a local hospital. Oxford Avenue neighbors claim that the German Shepherd had bitten another neighbor last month. Hopefully, officials will charge the defendant with multiple violations of the PA Dog Law, including harboring a dangerous dog.
