    Default need help! aggressiveness/bite

    If i put this in the wrong place i am sorry.

    I volunteered with a bulldog rescue to help with events. One of the dogs was there. She seemed very lovey dovey i was petting her and all and she seemed to love the attention then all of a sudden she clamped on to my hand, no warning and wouldn't let go. I added a pic of the bite... After biting me she bit someone else not even 10 minutes later. the handler seemed shocked that she did this and genuinely upset. I got bit around 12:30 and ended up going to the er around 3 due to still bleeding and extreme pain. its all puncture wounds one is worse than the other due to a small area being missing. I had to get liquid stitches in 4 of the wounds. One is still oozing this evening due to being a open wound. I was told that the dog has been abused in the past... and was up to-date on shots so i let it be.... well i just talked to someone who got the dog in the rescue and found out that the dog wasn't abused it was surrendered due to biting a 5 year old and causing trauma. So im kinda concerned now. Also i was told when it was surrendered its shots expired Jan.1st I have not seen proof of shots yet but i have asked for it. Should i be concerned of anything if the shots arent up to date? I am on bactrim and cleocin as a preventative. Im just wondering if i need to let my dr be aware of a possibility of the shots not being up to date? Wound wise it hurts like hell sorry for the bluntness lol... it goes from a numbing tingling (like it fell asleep) to severe pain clean to my elbow and in my whole hand. this is the first time ive ever been bitten so i dont know whats normal or what not...

    Ouch, wow she got you good. Dog bites are very painful because not only from the puncher wounds but from the trauma to the surrounding tissue. They also can get infected quite easily, so hopefully they gave you some antibiotics to take. As far as the shots go, that's a hard one. I think I'd ask your doc about that one. I would dought the bully has rabies, but you never know. You can also ask a vet about it as well and see what they say about it. So sorry you got bit and that bully has some major issues.

    I'm sorry that this has happened to you, and I love my bullies to death, and I dont want to upset anyone, but I know these comments probably will.

    Unfortunately, this dog sounds like a danger, and it can not be trusted. If this baby does not get immediate PROFESSIONAL help, I'm fearful for the outcome. Do not take 'someone's word' that its up todate on its shots (or not) you need PROOF for your own health, if there is ANY Doubt, then you must be treated as though the dog isnt vaccinated. Animals and people too ! are Vaccinated for reasons, just like this - to protect both the animals and humans. This dog needs to be quarantined immediately, before anything else, or anyone else is hurt.

    I don't know about where you live byt here when a dog bites and you get treatment it is mandatory to report it. Also id the dog is utd on shots then they have to be quarantined at home if it is not utd it has to be quarantined either at the shelter or a vets office. I would persue rhis. Im sorry but after the dog bit tje first time it should have been crated. To let this happen a second time is negligence. Period. And considering the true history this dog never should have been in public anyway.

    No help, just sorry that you are going thru this. That is a pretty big bite! This pup definitely sounds like it should NOT have been in a public place.

    Absolutely tell your MD ASAP that there is no proof of vaccination. You usually have a window of ten days for treatment of rabies. The dog should be quarantined and watched for signs and symptoms of rabies. Although the chance the dog has it is low, if it is infected rabies has a very high fatality rate if left untreated. More than likely you will have to follow up for IV antibiotics to treat the bite anyway. I received a bite in the same area and had to go to my MD daily for treatment for a week.

    @RaRett I totally agree with you I know we don't like to think this way about bullies but not all the of them are sweet. Some are dangerous take Abram for example. And as happy as I am for abs new situation, if I ever get a call that I have to take him back or that he has bitten a child or anyone besides his new owner really., I Will have him put down. The sad truth is not all dogs deserve to take up rescue resources and not all dogs should be saved some bullies included. A dog that bites for non legitimate reasons is not a dog that needs to be saved. Take one that needs rescued and doesn't bite

    Alisha, I agree with everything David and RaRett said, those are questions best answered by your doctor.... In getting hold of the Rabies records is a must !!, I'm thinking you probably didn't get a police report etc, but have others that knew or seen the incident in which you were injured by the animal, just in case there is a need to file an afidavit later. Thinking this Pet needs to be held back from any type of socialization until a handle can be gotten hold by the owner, Handler, and feel it was very irresponsible of the handler Owner for it to happen the first time, and the second time it happened would have been a dead give away the owner handler had no business with an animal. What breed of Bull Dog was this? and your hand looks painfully hurt !! Ouch....
