The wounds of a 7-year-old boy attacked in Plympton, Massachusetts, by a Staffordshire terrier. The boy’s mother tells NECN that while she is upset, she does not want the dog to be put down.

The child’s family was boarding the dog, whose owner, Kaitlyn Grispie of Middleboro, told officials that she was planning on putting him down.

Although she was upset after her son was attacked, the boy’s mother told NECN she did not want the dog to be harmed.

“When I heard that the dog was being put down … I said, ‘Give me the number – the case number, something. I don’t want that dog being put down,'” said Christine Cellini.

The dog, Buddy, will be quarantined at Grispie’s Lovell Street home for 10 days. Animal health and animal control officials will be performing checks on the dog.

According to Bush, Grispie is believed to be a friend of the victim’s family.

It is not yet known if the family of the boy intends to press charges.
