A New Canaan poodle has been re-homed following a biting incident last weekend at a condo complex downtown, officials said.
Long owned by an older woman who lives in Pride’s Crossing on Elm Street, the standard poodle on Saturday attacked a pair of leashed Havanese after bolting from its unit, according to a police report.
One of the dogs sustained puncture wounds to its leg, according to Officer Allyson Halm of the New Canaan Police Department’s Animal Control section.
The same dog nine months ago similarly had gotten out of its home and attacked a small dog, according to Halm. Neighbors have said several other incidents have gone unreported, officials said.
The poodle “has a history of breaking out of its house and going after small dogs,” she said.
The woman already has seen to it that the dog is in a loving new home and continuing to undergo training, officials said.
No tickets were issued in connection with the most recent incident.
