        LEBANON — A male Doberman pinscher that mauled its owner's 16-month-old son in an apparently unprovoked attack last month will be euthanized, officials at the Warren County animal shelter said Monday.

        The dog's owner, Constance Olson, was expected to pick up the 6-year-old male Doberman today after health district officials release it from a required 10-day quarantine, humane officer Tracie Oshel said.

        Ms. Oshel said she has confirmed that Mrs. Olson has an appointment with the dog's veterinarian to have the animal put down today.

        Police in Clearcreek Township said the Doberman attacked the toddler, Alec Olson, at 8:30 a.m. Sept. 27 at his family's home in the 2700 block of Harlan Road.

        The child suffered multiple bite wounds to his head and was hospitalized for one day.

        The family's female Doberman apparently wasn't involved in the attack, police said.
