Surveillance footage shows the terrifying moment a Home Depot customer was bitten by a dog — and its owner claimed it butted his victim.
The customer was visiting the store in Evergreen, Colorado, when the dog’s owner and trainer approached them on March 31.
He was asked to give the dog a treat as part of his training, but after agreeing he was bitten in the face by a Great Dane.
The dog’s owner and handler then immediately left the store as the staff took care of the victim.
They were caught on surveillance footage leaving the area, with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office releasing still photos searching for the two women.

Authorities confirmed that the victim sustained “serious” injuries and would require facial surgery.
The dog’s owner was arrested Thursday, with the sheriff’s office confirming that the dog is usually quarantined for similar cases.
In a statement, they said: “The owner will be held accountable for the recovery or in the event of any enforcement action.
For dog bites, the dog is quarantined in his home for 10 days, to ensure that the dog does not display any behaviors associated with rabies.
The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office is still investigating the incident, and no formal charges have been announced.
However, the victim wants to press charges, with officers filing two pending charges that include dog fighting outside buildings under the owner’s control or harboring a vicious dog.
The owner claims that the dog did not bite the victim but rather butted the victim’s head, and the dog is kept in a rabies quarantine for seven days in his home.
