GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Two people were hospitalized after being attacked by a dog Thursday evening, according to the Grand Rapids Police Department.
It happened around 6:10 p.m. in the 1800 block of Stafford Avenue SW.
A man and woman sustained serious but non-life-threatening injuries to their arms, GRPD says. The man was taken to the hospital via ambulance and the woman was taken there by a private vehicle.
The dog, which belonged to the mother of the woman who was hurt, was seized by Kent County Animal Control.
The dog involved is a Rhodesian ridgeback. The American Kennel Club says these dogs were bred to be hunters and family protectors, and described them as “‘people’ dogs.”
Grand Rapids police are investigating.
