Okay, what would you guys do? My friend's BF/fiancée has a well-behaved adult bulldog who's always been calm, patient and good with everyone's kids. That is until the other day when he bit a friend's small child on the head, drawing blood from 3-4 contusions on the face and scalp. Luckily no permanent injury and no (visible) scarring expected. Medical expenses present and future are totally covered by the shocked dog owner. To my understanding, the dog was not baited or aggravated. Decided out of the blue to chomp the kid at a social gathering. No lawsuits pending or anything. Just disbelief for everyone involved. Owner's first inclination was to put the dog down despite years of friendship/companionship - all the stuff we love about pets. As far as I know this hasn't been done. I don't have a stake in any of this, nor have I been asked to weigh in with an opinion. I'm just curious what the general consensus here might be if the dog was your own.
