An eight-year-old Kauai boy is recovering after a dog attack.

Kauai Police say Jeremiah Dela Cruz was riding his bike in Wailua Homestead on Makana Road when the rottweiler attacked him.

Jeremiah’s father says the dog bit his left leg and left arm and that his son had to spend four days in the hospital.

“Physically he’s fine. He’s in a little bit of pain as far as his arm goes but as far as the psychological I don’t know how long that’s gonna last,” Jeremiah’s father Matt Dela Cruz said.

Police say the owner was cited for having a dangerous dog.

He surrendered it to the Kauai Humane Society on Monday and the dog was euthanized.
