I got my dog two years ago from the humane society. We were told he didn't bite,but he has bit the back of a few people's legs. It is as if he feels like he needs to attack when they're not looking. He never has broken skin, but he bit a 9 month old baby on the back of the leg tonight and we feel as if it has gone too far. The dog was due for his rabies vaccine six months ago. Is the baby at risk for rabies even though this is a behavior we have seen from our dog in the past?
