Who is on a run line in our 7 acre farm, just scratched the neighbors 5yr old kid. He came to play with our 8 yr old ds. The 2 yr old spayed female (german shepard )was on the overhead run line. DS went to get something from the basement area outside, the 5 yr old walked into the dogs line. She jumped up and either bit or scratched him. Looks like a scratch, but its deep over eye and bleeding bad. DH walked him back next door they are now at hospital getting looked at and stitches i'm SURE! I just called the vet clinic to get confirmation on her rabies, vet said no she was due in may of 2010, I had thought she was good for 3 years. DH is freaking out regarding our responsibilities. I am sooo worried and sure boy will have a scar. Told dh that's what we have home owners for, he said they could still sue us. Kid was of course crying and scared to death. Our son said dog growled and then jumped on top of kid, and he isn't sure if bit or scratched. So now I have to go to get dd from school and its her dog. WORST day ever, and I think dog's last day, please send us your thoughts.
