Police were responding to a domestic disturbance call. When they knocked on the door, they were faced with an aggressive Dalmatian. They asked the woman to confine the dog, but she opened the door further.
The dog ran out and bit one of the officers, then attempted to bite another. One officer shot the dog in the hindquarters.
When the bitten officer declined treatment, officers and paramedics were kind enough to bring the Dalmatian out on the stretch and rush her to an emergency veterinarian who described the dog as fear-aggressive. A neighbor who witnessed the attack stated that the Dalmatian's behavior fits the dog, who has a history of reacting aggressively or in fear.
