Medical Summary ***All Staff Walks*** Incident: Victim, aged 4, was on the couch in the living room and Max walked by. Child then proceeded to hug Max and Max reacted and bit her on her lip. Accordong to the witness, there was no warning signs. There was one elongated puncture on the child’s face that required 4 stitches. They went to Wyckoff Medical to be treated. Max released immediatly and retreated. 7/30: Max was wiggling and wagging his tail in his kennel, he was easily leashed and brought outside. He immediately began jumping and soliciting attention from a coworker and I. He was easily collared and had a leash attached. Max allowed any and all handling and was consistently looking for attention. He would jump and run up to us throughout the interaction. He allowed me to pick him up and place him on the bench, where he once again allowed any and all handling from me. His social and affectionate behavior continued until it was time to return him to his kennel which he entered without incident.
