MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A waitress on Miami Beach's famously dog-friendly Lincoln Road is recovering after being mauled by a large dog.
Police say a cane corso bit Amy Calandrella in the face as she bent down with a bowl of water. A Miami-Dade County Animal Services report says Calandrella received more than 300 stitches.
Calandrella's attorney tells The Miami Herald (http://hrld.us/UiNt7S ) that the Van Dyke Cafe waitress needed more than seven hours of surgery to repair the wound.
No charges were filed. The dog was allowed to remain with its owner.
Van Dyke Cafe managers say police could not do anything more about the Labor Day weekend attack because dogs are allowed on Lincoln Road. Restaurants along the popular pedestrian thoroughfare regularly offer bowls of water to dogs seated with their owners.
