One Oxford woman said she needs plastic surgery after being bitten by a German Shepherd.
People in one Oxford neighborhood want a neighbor's 2-year-old German Shepherd removed from the community after it attacked and two women.
Karen Rand said she received a hysterical phone call from her friend, who said she was attacked by a dog.
When Karen walked around her Oxford neighborhood to find the dog, she saw it in a neighbor’s house. That was just before she was attacked, police said.
“The dog started barking as soon as he saw me, and all of the sudden the door broke open and he just lunged at me," Rand said.
Karen tried to run, but the dog bit her arm and leg to the point where she said she will undergo plastic surgery.
Animal control officers rushed to the scene, took the dog away and it will be quarantined for 14 days.
Rand said she wants the dog out of the community for good.
"He bit my neighbor's son in the back of the neck and he also bit my son," she said.
She also wants an apology from her neighbor, who she said was once her friend.
"She hasn't even called me, which I'm very surprised because we've been friends for nine years,” Rand said. “Not even a, ‘How are you?’ nothing."
NBC Connecticut went to the dog owner’s house, but no one answered the door and a man who drove away from his house refused to comment.
The dog's owner was cited for the incident, that still remains under investigation.
