Hawkes says the German shorthair has been quarantined and its owner cited for having a dangerous dog, a Class B misdemeanor.
The dog's owner has not been identified but Animal Control Officer Nolan Krebs said he has been very cooperative. He's offered to cover the child's medical expenses and has arranged for the dog to go to a new home if released.
His hearing is scheduled April 29 in Hyde Park Justice Court.
