DENISON, Tex. -- A five-year-old Sherman boy is recovering from a dog attack that happened on Sunday at Waterloo Park in Denison. Lisa church says her son was having a picnic with his babysitter when a brown and black dog tried to take his food and then bit him on the cheek.

The child was treated at Texoma Medical Center for a bite to his face.

"Well, I was real nervous that it could've been worse, but I was just lucky that it wasn't and if it would’ve been worse, I don't know what I would do," Lisa Church, the parent of child attacked, said.

The child is expected to be fine. Authorities are still looking for the dog involved.

    Rachael, why do you even ask this question? Maybe they don't know the breed and therefore didn't mention the breed. Whether it be a pit bull or not. It could have been anything. It could have been a brown and black miniature rammahannaquanzmas dog for all we know, so don't go whining about pits, unless you forgot to shave yours. Thanks Gorilla! :)

    How come they only mention the breed when it's a pitbull attack and then shortly after there's another story done on how horrible they are? I would be very interested to know what breed it is. I bet it's not a pitbull!

    where was the babysitter if they was out having a picnic then the babysitter should have been watching the surroundings and if the dog was walking up she could have tried to shu him off

    We need more info. What breed of dog was it? (a Chihuahua, Lab, Pit Bull)??? What prompted the dog to "TAKE" the food? Was the child teasing the dog? Did the dog appear vicious? Did the dog have a collar and tags??? It is an unfortunately incident, and I really am glad the child is fine, but the story is full of holes. I suspect the dog was just hungry, approached the child, the child offered a bite of food for the dog, and perhaps tried to take it away from the dog. (just try to take a ham sandwich away from most ANY dog) Nope...they don't like it. HEY JC, that thar' is just FUNNY!! I don't care who you are!! Also, good point FastFoodSux

    The blame needs to be put on an irresponsible dog owner not a five year old child or an understaffed city emoployee. Most of the dogs around the park are not strays but family pets.

    I can tell you animal control in Denison is very poor. There is one officer and he has trouble catching dead ones, much less ones that don't want to be caught

    Prayers for the Church family. I hope the owner of the animal is located.
