A 9-month-old boy had to have surgery after he was mauled by the family’s dog while playing in their living room. And, hey, what do you know, it wasn’t a pit bull, but a boxer.
Authorities said the attack took place at 2:45 p.m. Tuesday when an adult male boxer named Tyson lunged at the child in the home on the 3600 block of Monmouth Place. The infant sustained injuries to his face and neck, and was taken to Oakland Children’s Hospital where he underwent surgery.
Fremont police detective Bill Veteran said at the time of the attack the boy was with his sister and an aunt.
“The child was in the living room with two female adults –.one is an adult sister. The other…an aunt,” Veteran said. “For no apparent reason the dog lunged out and grabbed the child by the face and the neck.”
