So my brother calls me at work today and says while he was feeding the dogs, one of them bit him on the hand. See, my sister left her dog, Lucy, here for the weekend while she's on vacation. Well, Diesel, my dog, doesn't particularly like Lucy all that much although they don't ever fight. He just growls at her a bit when she gets too close, she backs off. When my brother was out feeding them today, Diesel was growling at Lucy and my brother put his hand in front of him to get him to back off. Diesel bit him on the hand. It was nothing major, just a little blood, no nerve damage or anything, but he went to the clinic anyways, since he has a condition that requires he get all open wounds checked out. Well, my brother told them the whole truth and the clinic called animal control citing a law that requires any dog that bites a human is to be quarantined for 10 days. Why my brother didn't just tell them a stray bit him, I don't know. Stupid. I called animal control myself and they said, Yes he has to be quarantined since I don't have proof of vaccinations. I am furious! Diesel has never bitten anyone and does NOT have rabies. I'm well aware that if he shows the slightest bit of aggression while at the shelter, they will kill him and test him for rabies. I can tell you right now, that is NOT happening. The animal control officer is supposed to show up at my house in the morning. My sister suggested I ignore them and if they press to tell them it wasn't my dog but a stray, I guess the clinic misunderstood. Has anybody had a situation like this? How did it go? I'm thinking of taking Diesel to a friends house until this blows over.
