Rottweiler dog bite attack in Pennsylvania settles for $130,000

A Rottweiler attack which occurred in 2009 in Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania settled in 2012 for $130,000.  The victim was a four-year-old girl.  She was bitten in the face, which required 50 stitches, and subsequently revision surgery was performed.

Rottweilers obtained from reputable breeders and when trained and socialized properly can make great family pets. Nonetheless, as apparent from the incident under review, a Rottweiler attack can cause serious injury. This is a breed that needs to be properly supervised, particularly when a Rottie is around unfamiliar children at a birthday party.

The incident happened when the child attended a party with her family, and another guest brought the Rottweiler to the party and subsequently left the Rottweiler unrestrained and unsupervised.  Both the property owner and the owner of the Rottweiler were sued.
