Dallaglio Son Attacked By Family Dog

Dog Attack


The six-year-old son of former England rugby captain Lawrence Dallaglio has received stitches after being mauled by the family's dog.

Dallaglio and his wife Alice were preparing to leave the family home in Richmond for the Wasps' end-of-season banquet when Enzo was attacked.

The attack happened when he went to stroke Como, the family's Rhodesian Ridgeback, and it attacked him.

Enzo was taken to St George's Hospital in Tooting where his wounds were stitched up and he was put on an antibiotic drip to combat infection.

He was released on Friday morning and is expected to make a full recovery although some of the scars could take time to fade.

Como, who had shown no previous sign of aggression, was destroyed.
