She knows the Nephew and has played with him before, but when she came in the house she ran right to him and bit him on the calf. Kevin was trying to get away but she kept going after him, biting multiple times. Level 3a - the dog bit his calf and then kept going after him, but since he was wearing pants he just got some very minor scratches. No medical attention needed. Prior Incident -- The owners 10 y.o. niece was playing with the dog in the backyard. The dog jumped and bit the nieces arm, and latched on to her jacket. Level 2 bite, did not break skin.
