Antoinette Taus was attacked by a Chow Chow while attending a wedding in Baguio.
The 38-year-old actress took to Facebook to give the details of the incident that happened on March 2 and to give reminders to those who own the same breed.
In a statement today, March 4, Antoinette said that she was attacked on her left forearm, left thigh, and right breast and is currently recovering from the trauma.
"My left forearm suffered the worst and took two hours of surgery and suturing," she related. "When it first happened there was some fat hanging out of the wound and I could even see the tendon in my wrist. Luckily there’s no permanent damage and no arteries or nerves were harmed."
She furthered, "For those thinking of getting a dog, I have been told that Chow Chows are the number one breed known to be involved dog bite cases."
Despite what happened, Antoinette assured her readers that it was not her natural instinct to harm the dog during the incident.
"He is perfectly fine. But I am definitely traumatized most especially by the Chow Chow breed."
In the end, she informed everyone to consider adoption and give abandoned dogs more attention.
"Please give some thought to adopting dogs. Some parts of the US don’t allow dogs to be purchased in pet stores any longer."
