Now that James Harrison III is up and walking, his father is seeking a way to avoid putting down the dog that bit the 2-year-old. Patron, the pit bull owned by Steelers linebacker James Harrison, became agitated when the toddler began crying last Wednesday at their Franklin Park home and bit the child. James III has been in Children’s Hospital of UPMC since then. The child’s mother, Beth Tibbott, and a friend also were injured as they tried to separate dog and boy. Both women have recovered. Mr. Harrison was not at home during the attack. The dog was taken to Animal Control of McKees Rocks, and Mr. Harrison said he would have him put down after a 10-day quarantine. A number of people responded to the planned euthanization by saying there were organizations that might take the dog. Mr. Harrison’s agent, Bill Parise, said yesterday that they were seeking an alternative for Patron. “I’m a dog lover, and I don’t know what I’d do if I lost [my dog],” Mr. Parise said. “James was that close with Patron. One of the things James and I talked about was that this was a real tragedy — the injury to his baby, and the baby’s mother, and the loss of the dog. It’s hard.” — Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
