Here is a sad story about a 7 month old lab puppy put to sleep after being in a car accident. His owner’s car was struck by a teen driver who was texting while he was driving. A fireman tried to help the puppy in the wrecked vehicle, but the puppy bit him – most definitely in fear.
When a dog is in a car wreck, they are terrified. And when a dog is terrified they may bite or run out of fear. It is important to remember to try to muzzle an injured animal before trying to help them. It is not known whether the puppy was put to sleep because of his injuries or because he bit someone.
