Hours after setting the stage for his media debut on the front pages of The Daily Bronxville and The Daily Eastchester, Dudley, first dog of Bronxville, was injured.
Trustee Anne Poorman reports that hours after being photographed at Mayor Mary Marvin's office, Dudley had a run in with another dog.
"Dudley was on our front lawn and spotted an interloper. A golden retriever crossed onto our property and Dudley gave chase. In the melee Dudley tore his cruciate ligament badly and needs knee surgery. He is currently a three-legged poodle....so sad," Poorman said.
Poorman said Dudley will have surgery today and will have a six-week recovery, including physical therapy.
"Wish us luck," she said.
