HALL COUNTY, Ga. - The Hall County Sheriff's Office says a 22-day-old baby has died after being attacked by a dog inside her family's home.
The sheriff said the attack happened at a home on Gillsville Highway, in a bedroom where the 3-week-old girl was sleeping.
The baby was rushed to Northeast Georgia Medical Center with serious injuries, where she died, officials said.
I can't imagine what this family is going through to lose their infant child and family pet. It is hard to imagine your pet attacking your child. At the end of the day a pet is an animal with instincts and you just never know when they will kick in. I have seen dogs kill a cat they have lived with for years. I see pictures of toddlers laying on large dogs on the internet all the time. It always freaks me out most people can't read their dogs when the animal is getting nervous. I can only pray for this family and share the experience so others don't suffer.
