A Florida family has been slapped with a $1 million lawsuit from an attorney who claims their family dog chomped on his nipple at a dog park, the Florida Sun-Sentinel reported.
William R. Cohen told the Sun-Sentinel that he was viciously attacked by a two-year-old Jack Russell terrier at the Boca Raton dog park on March 31. Cohen is now suing the dog's owners, Steven and Michelle Bushouse, along with Steven's father James. The couple had adopted the dog, whom they named "Taz," a week before.
The Bushouses claim that Cohen scooped Taz up to break a doggie fight and got nipped by the territorial terrier.
"He was kind of like: 'Ow. That kind of hurt,'" Steven Bushouse told the Sun-Sentinel.
Cohen is suing for medical treatment, loss of income and for general damages for pain, suffering, physical disfigurement and "loss of sexual comfort and desire."
