Infant hospitalized after bite

A 5-month-old Spring Hill boy was in stable condition Monday in the intensive-care unit at Lykes Memorial Hospital in Brooksville after the family's dog bit him in the genitals. According to the Sheriff's Office report, the mother heard the child cry Sunday, then entered his room and discovered that the dog, a cross between a Pekingese and poodle known as a peekapoo, had bitten into the baby's diapers.

The parents took the boy to the hospital, where he underwent surgery. According to the report, the parents are being investigated by the state Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services for possible child neglect.
