Children are particularly susceptible to dog attacks

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are approximately 4.5 million dog bites each year in the United States. While that number is certainly staggering, another equally concerning statistic reported by the ASPCA is that roughly half of all dog-bite victims that seek medical attention are actually children.

With summer almost here, kids must remember to be cautious of dogs

While dog bites are truly tragic no matter the victim, they are especially devastating when they involve children.

The video, which has garnered 21 million views on YouTube, shows the dog biting and attempting to drag the boy. Within seconds, Tara leapt onto the dog, and in a flurry of hair and nails chased the canine away.

San Diego Dog Bites, Children Most Common Victims

The threat of dog bites is a reality for San Diegans. We are blessed with great weather. A natural accompaniment to the warmer climate is many opportunities for outdoor activity. For dog owners this means taking the dog for a walk. According to San Diego County Animal Control, San Diego's 3.2 million residents share our County with more than 1 million pets and sheltered animals.
