A Laurentians mother is calling on dog owners to be vigilant after her 5-year-old was malformed at the beginning of September by an adult dog Dane, who had to be muzzled in the presence of the children.

Had we known he was an aggressive dog, we would have taken precautions with the kids in the yard. The mask was supposed to be put on and tied up,” Sarah Boesclair says wistfully.
On September 7, his son Madden was having fun at a friend’s house with other friends in Mont-Laurier when Beeston, the Great Dane, approached him. It is also a breed known for its kindness.
“They thought the dog would lick him, because he didn’t scream, and eventually attacked him,” sums up M.I Wood scan.
One of the young men had to hit the monster with a broom to stop the attack. Then adults at the scene found the child, his face covered in blood, with deep wounds.
An ophthalmologist and a plastic surgeon worked more than five hours in the operating room on the wounds of Madden, who nearly lost his eye.
“He has a tube in his eye that replaces the tear duct with tears,” Sarah Boeskler says. He was very lucky, according to the doctors, that his eye was not affected any further.
The mother of five was also upset to learn that last year, a dog behaviorist recommended that the dog be muzzled or isolated in the presence of children.
According to our information, the Great Dane, who was euthanized, showed aggression against the children with whom he lived on several occasions.

The owner who refused to talk to magazinehe had consulted an expert after a young man was injured.
Sarah Boisclair insists, who, like Madden’s father, will be able to rely on a fundraiser while he is away from work to cover the expenses resulting from the attack.
Dog behavior worker Sonia Birubi says that the majority of gentlemen find it difficult to realize that their animals can be dangerous.
She adds that no matter what the general mastiff’s habits are, you need to be on the lookout.
“A dog is a dog. It is an animal with teeth that has its own qualities and flaws. You have to accept it as it is, and see it as it is,” attributed to M.I Birubi.
