According to the New York State Department of Health 6,600 individuals under 20 years old are injured by a dog bite each year. Of those 6,600 victims, 200 are injured seriously enough to require hospitalization.
Furthermore, dog attacks are even more of a problem throughout the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, dogs bite nearly 4.5 million Americans each year, and surprisingly, children are the victim in half of these attacks. One in five dog bites results in a serious injury ranging from scarring and disfigurement to the loss of a limb, finger or toe. Severe dog and animal bite injuries may require long-term medical care including plastic surgery, physical therapy, or a combination of both.
