On Friday night 1-year-old Jeremiah Eskew-Shahan was attacked by a family dog during his first birthday party.
According to the report, the little boy went to pet the family’s 120 lb. Mastiff/Rhodesian mix when the dog bit the child’s head and then continued to attack the child until the dog was finally stopped.
Jeremiah was rushed from the house to the nearest hospital for treatment of his injuries. He was tragically pronounced dead early Saturday morning.
The dog named “Onion” was taken into custody and will be euthanized after a 10-day period of observation for rabies.
Our thoughts are with the family of little Jeremiah during this difficult time.
