According to a Murray County official, the deputy knelt down beside the dog and put his arm around him for a "selfie." That's when the dog turned and attacked the deputy.

Officials say the dog was probably feeling threatened and was protecting his handler as well as himself. The deputy was taken to the hospital where he underwent emergency out-patient surgery.
