Dog that bit Kitchener toddler declared dangerous animal

Posted February 1, 2010 The jack russell KITCHENER — A dog that bit a two-year-old boy in the face has been declared a dangerous animal by officers with the Kitchener-Waterloo Humane Society.   That means the dog’s owners will have to abide by several rules if they want to keep the animal, including caging the dog when children are around, keeping a muzzle on it and having it microchipped.   The toddler and his parents were visiting an apartment on Queen Street South in the late afternoon Saturday when the homeowner’s 30-pound Jack Russell terrier cross bit him.   Kathy Innocente, spokesperson for the Humane Society, said the dog was startled before biting the child.   The toddler lost the end of his nose and was taken to hospital. He underwent plastic surgery Monday.
