BEDFORD (1080 KRLD) - An elderly woman was injured when her daughter's dog attacked her this weekend.

The daughter often puts a muzzle on her German Shepherd when she visits her mother because the dog has a history of becoming aggressive with her mom's smaller dog.

​This weekend, the daughter had left the house and did not put the muzzle on her dog. Bedford Police say the German Shepherd attacked the smaller dog in the backyard.

Police say the woman stood in the way to protect her dog. The German Shepherd bit the woman in the arm.

Officers entered the backyard and fired two beanbags to control the German Shepherd. The woman was taken to the hospital but should recover.
