Default My Chi was attacked today - help!

Hi Everyone,

Sam, my 9 month old Chi was attacked today by a terrier type dog, it bit him hard, ive just got back from the vets who have taken him in to operate and they said that the bite has gone through his abdominal wall...im freaking out a little bit!

Hopefully he will get home tonight and will be fine, but i just want any advice from anyone who has had their Chi attacked ? I am going to need to get him back out and amongst other dogs asap - but he was already a bit shy/nervous around other dogs, but he was improving, now im worried that hes going to be too scared to leave the house!!

Any advice is welcomed!

Hope everything turns out well.

Is there a dog park in your area ?
If there is, it's a great way to gradually introduce your dogs to other dogs, especially if they have a small dogs area. Mine started out in such an area, but they were more interested in the big dogs, and it didn't take long until they were out in the bigger dog area. You can certainly keep him on a leash, although that tends to make dogs more edgy than if they were free.

If you don't have access, hopefully you can find a friend ( or make one ) with a dog, and let your chi get socialized with him. I'd try to get him around some friendly dogs asap.

Maybe go to one of the petstores that let you take your dog inside, and let him meet some dogs there, too.

Oh how scary! Maybe check around for toy breed/chi meetups in your area? That might help you locate 'friendly' dogs. Please keep us posted on your little one.
