My step-father's grandson(about 10 years old) likes to claim our family dog (lab/pointer mix) bites him every time he comes over.The dog isn't so great with children & the child making the accusations pulls the dogs hair, etc to get him upset.He's growled but never bitten.
The grandson claimed the dog bit him again on Thanksgiving, which was a lie.Five adults were in the same room & saw nothing .The dog he accused wasn't even inside the house.He's also claimed the dog bit him when the dog was wearing a muzzle.
This kid is a liability & his parents are really sue happy.
We are terrified that his accusations could result in our dog taken away.We now leave with the dog when he will be there. What else should we do? If a complaint was made to pd/animal control, what would happen to my dog?
