Pit Bull euthanized after attack

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A dog responsible for mauling a special-needs boy has been euthanized.

Austin Dixon will find out next week whether he needs plastic surgery to reconstruct his lip after the dog attack earlier this month.

We're told the pit bull failed several behavioral tests, and it refused to let anyone touch it. It couldn't be put up for adoption.
