If that would have been my foot or any other body part, I would have had broken bones and lots of lacerated tissue. He wasn't letting go for anything - and apparently he has been lashing out randomly like this for 9 mos. We are referring him to a behaviorist/neurologist - DVM thinks he may have a brain tumor.
Needless to say, I'm a little shook up.
Yikes! We had a giant german shepherd (112lbbs) do this from the shelter I work for. The family that adopted him said that one day he just snapped and tried to kill them they managed to use a matress to get him in a bathroom until AC could come and traquilize him. It was later determined that he had a huge brain tumor. Sad day.
