A Rhine woman and her 8-year-old son were treated and released Saturday from Dodge County Hospital after both were bitten by the family’s pit bull, according to the sheriff’s office.

Sheriff’s Lt. Joel Hanson said Amy Davis and her son were inside their Fairhaven Church Road home when the boy started to play with a new litter of puppies recently delivered by the pit bull. When one of the puppies started to make a noise, the dog bit the boy on his left arm. When Davis entered the room, the dog reportedly bit her several times.

The dog ran away from the house. Hanson said he wasn’t sure Monday afternoon of the dog’s status.

An official with the South Central Health District said in cases such as this one, dogs are tested for rabies.
