CALLAWAY, Md. — We are receiving reports this afternoon that a girl has been transported to a nearby hospital after sustaining a dog bite.

At approximately 1:37 p.m. on August 6, first responders were dispatched to the 20000 block of Piney Point Road for reports that a juvenile had been attacked by a dog.

Crews from the Second District Volunteer Fire Department and Rescue Squad arrived first on the scene to find a 16-year-old female had been attacked by what first responders identified as “a Pitbull or Rottweiler.”

No further description of the animal has been provided.

The female victim reportedly sustained injuries to her upper body, later described specifically as around her her chest, neck and head.

First responders indicated that she was seriously bleeding, but she was conscious, alert and breathing.

The animal was captured and contained soon after the incident took place.

The victim was transported soon after with what is believed to be non-life-threatening injuries to a nearby hospital for additional treatment.

This is a developing story. We will continue to provide additional details as they are made available.

  1. I feel so bad for the girl but pits aren’t mean unless taught it. Please don’t euthanize. I pray she heals quickly.

    1. This is not true. They have been bred to fight for centuries and some of them are unstable and dangerous.

  2. I always said those dogs need not be in a residential area. They are breed to attack people an cause bodily harm. There are a lot of incidents that are being reported.

    1. Pit Bulls are illegal in PG County. As they should be. They were outlawed in the 90s after children were killed by them.

  3. The owners need to be held responsible for their dogs actions. No different than if it was their kid attacking someone. Get a lawyer and sue them for hospital bills as well as damages for her mental and psychological anguish.

  4. Black and white opinions don’t belong in this debate….. nobody knows what that girl and that dog do.

  5. Pitt or Rott? Very different looking dogs. 60 pound dog or 100-130 pound dog? Let’s get the facts before calling out breeds.
