Parents Sue Over Dog Bite

Dog owners, Robert and Kathleen Horne are being sued by the parents of an eight-year-old boy who has suffered permanent scars and extensive plastic surgery to his face from a 3-year-old Jack Russell terrier. The case says that the dog had been running loose and the Hornes “negligently failed to keep, maintain, provide, secure and license the dog at all applicable times.” When the boy and his friend were sitting on the front step with the terrier, petting him, it reportedly lunged at the boy and bit his right cheek. A jury has been requested for the case and they are seeking approximately $8,000 in medical expenses and corrective plastic surgery for the boy.
