A two-year-old boy who was attacked by a dog is in a serious condition in hospital.
The boy was bitten by a Bull Arab dog a number of times on his chest, back, head and legs. He was in the front yard of an East Nowra home at about 4pm on Sunday and was taken to Shoalhaven Hospital where he remains in a serious but stable condition.
The dog has been taken to the RSPCA’s Shoalhaven shelter, Mike Jarman from the Shoalhaven City Council Rangers told AAP.
They know who the dog belongs to and they are trying to confirm it through a microchip scan.
“At the moment the dog is too unsettled and too aggressive to get near it to see if it’s registered to the owners,” Mr Jarman said.
They don’t have the power to put the dog down without the owner’s permission, he said.
We hope he is doing OK!
More to come as updates come in.
