Dog Bite Victim Faces Rabies Shots
"If she don't care enough even about her animals to come forward, then he has 7 weeks of being extremely sick for no reason," said Kenfield. "If the dog has had its shots, then Derrick's fine. We don't have to worry about going through the rabies treatment. If the dog has not had its shots, and the time is getting very close, then there's a really good chance he's still going to have to undergo rabies treatment."
Her son said he tried to avoid the dog.
"I was actually trying to get around, and she got me up here first. And, when I was trying to get away a little bit faster, she got me again."
The Miller County Sheriff's Department and Kenfield's neighbors have been unable to find Floyd, who's the only one who knows if her dog had rabies shots.
The local shelter will hold the dog for 10 days, but doctors told Hallowell's family he needs to start the shots in 72 hours.
