DELTONA, Fla. - A 20-month-old Deltona child was hospitalized after being bitten in the face by a dog, Wednesday morning.
The child was taken to the hospital at around 10 a.m.
The dog's owner, who said she is a friend of the child's family, told Channel 9's Anthony DiLorenzo that she has never had a problem with her dog, Snowball, attacking people before.
"I'm more upset about the baby than with my dog. I but I know my dog is friendly. If I brought him he'd be here licking you," the owner said.
The dog's owner said the child was alert and crying when he was taken to the hospital.
