LIVERMORE FALLS — The grandmother of an 18-month-old boy who was attacked by the family dog in their Livermore Falls home last weekend says the child is recovering well.
Destiny Enman tells the Sun Journal her grandson was bitten on the top of his head and forehead by the dog, an American bulldog and husky mix. The dog was previously reported to be a pit bull-wolf hybrid.
Enman was also bitten as she rushed to help the boy.
The child and the grandmother were taken to a hospital in Lewiston where they were treated and released. Enman says the boy is not expected to have any permanent injuries.
The animal was euthanized and tests showed it did not have rabies. Enman said she did not know why the dog attacked.
