The dog was taken in by the shelter on Jan. 2 after its owner, who is homeless, was unable to care for the animal due to the cold weather conditions. Nearly a week later, the dog reportedly attacked two volunteers. Both sustained injuries but refused medical attention and the scene. They were treated at a facility nearby.
The dog has been quarantined for 10 days, set to expire this Friday. According to reports, he will be returned to his owner at that time.
