My 9 year old Jack Russell got bitten by a big black dog on the back of the neck. He was in our garden, when on an a pathway bordering our fence, a woman with her dog not on a leash walked by. Her dog came up to the fence and started snarling. My fearless Picollo grew angry, defending his territory. He got so angry that he forced himself under the fence to attack the much bigger dog. I heard them fighting and the woman screaming. By the time I walked down a stairway, opened the gate and ran down the pathway, the woman had disappeared. Picollo was angry and ready to pursue the black dog. I picked up friend and walked back to our garden. It was then that I noticed a bit of blood on his neck. i went with my wife to a veterinarion, who shaved his hair on the back and side of the neck to better inspect the wound. Luckily the bites were superficial. He got an antibiotic injection, and will have to take antibiotics fir 10 days. He is fine again. What a scare. Lucky he was not injured seriously. My question: does anyone know how long it will take for his fur to grow back? Thanks.
