Today units from Huntingtown and Dunkirk were dispatched for an injured subject after a dog attack. Chief 10 clearing a cardiac arrest in North Beach heard the dispatch and added himself to the call for possible pain management. Reports were that a dog owner was attacked by 3 of his pitbulls and needed EMS attention. Upon the arrival of Chief 10 crews from Huntingtown and Dunkirk were already speaking with the owner who was refusing any medical attention. As crews were getting ready to leave the owner asked if anyone could help treat the one severely injured dog. Chief 10 having received K9 care training a year ago volunteered to go and asses the dog. The dog was a large older pitbull found in a pool of blood with several puncture wounds all over its legs and chest. The dog was still alive but was laying very still, chief 10 bandaged as many of the holes he could find and worked with the owner to notify the Huntingtown (Mid-Atlantic Animal Specialty Hospital) to prepare them for the arrival of this critical animal. With assistance from chief 10 the owner loaded his dog into his car for transport to the facility. Sadly according to the owner, once at the MASH the veterinarian staff advised him that his dog's injuries were too severe for the dog to survive and he had to be put down.

Units: E62, A58, Chief10, CCSO, Calvert Co Animal Control
