The dog, a 10-month-old American bully breed male, had been recently neutered and was wearing a protective cone when he hurt the boys. The dog belongs to the homeowner’s adult son, who recently moved in temporarily with his girlfriend and her son. Authorities ordered the dog under quarantine in the home for 10 days as they await the results of a rabies test.
