LARIMER (KDKA) – A 7-year-old boy was attacked by his neighbor’s dog on his way home from school Tuesday afternoon.

The child was rushed to Childrens Hospital after his neighbor’s Akita-mix bit him on the leg as he walked down Shetland Street in Larimer.

The dog apparently got out through a hole in the fence.

The dog was signed over to Animal Control and will be euthanized.

The boy’s leg was stitched up at the hospital.
