German Shepherd Dog Bites three-year-old boy in the face

APOPKA — A 3-year-old boy is recovering from surgery after he was bitten by a dog belonging to his uncle Thursday night. Investigators said the dog, a German Shepherd, was chained to the front of a home, but for some reason went after the boy.

The boy was taken to Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, where he underwent surgery for severe dog bites. The dog was taken to Orange County Animal Services. According to Animal Services, a dog is three times as likely to bite while it is confined on a chain.

Experts said dogs on a chain tend to act more territorial and aggressive.
