To answer your questions:
They did get the dog from a shelter and it had been abused as a puppy. The owners did not punish the dog at all. I think they did no more than hold her. The doctor did...

You've described how you treat a dog that has never bitten. This one has. How would you treat a dog that has bitten?

I feel this way and it is good to hear that a "dog person" agrees. What about other (unknown) children?

Do you think it is reasonable to expect the owner to keep the dog away from them too or...

Question When is a muzzle acceptable?

Everyone posting here seems to think that a muzzle isn't really a valueable preventative measure. My infant was just bitten by a dog on her face. I am asking the owner to put a muzzle on the dog to...
