The Humane Society in Union County has decided to euthanize a dog that attacked a young girl last week.
Four-year-old Briseis Aljumaily was attacked by her family's coon hound one week ago in Luttrell.
The family said they wanted the Humane Society to euthanize the dog named Jake because they worried the Union County Humane Society would re-adopt him. Now, the society says it will euthanize Jake on Tuesday.
The society's director says health officials asked to quarantine the dog for 10 days for rabies testing. Those 10 days are up on Tuesday.
The family says they're relieved by the news.
