Girl, 3, bitten by startled pet: 4400 block, Stanford St., Chevy Chase, Nov. 5. A 3-year-old girl attempted to pet a dog sleeping in its bed. The female black mixed-breed dog awoke and bit the girl on the lip. Animal services reported that the dog was current on its rabies vaccination and placed the animal under a standard 10-day quarantine. The girl received medical treatment and was expected to be fine.

Escaped Rottweiler attacks corgi mix: 2000 block, Wallace Ave., Silver Spring, Nov. 5. A female Rottweiler mix wandered out of its yard and into another, attacking a neighbor’s Welsh corgi mix. The injured dog’s owner, who reported the attack, broke up the dogs, but the corgi mix received several bite wounds on its abdomen. The Rottweiler’s owner told an animal services officer that houseguests from out of the country had let the dog out, unaware it was not allowed to run free. The corgi mix’s owner has the right to file an affidavit in which citations would be issued for unwanted contact and the dog being loose. It was not known whether the owner would pursue the matter.
