OVIEDO, Fla. - The pit bull that bit a server at an Oviedo Outback restaurant over the weekend will "most likely" be euthanized after the dog's quarantine period expires, according to Seminole County Animal Services.

Bob Hunter, director of Seminole County Animal Services, told Local 6 on Tuesday that the dog's quarantine period expires on May 27 and the shelter doesn't typically adopt out dogs that have a history of biting humans.

Hunter said the dog will be assessed once the quarantine period is over and the ultimate decision will then be made.

Oviedo police said the server was working in the outdoor dining area of the restaurant on Saturday when the 50-pound pit bull bit her on the arm when she approached to give the dog water in a bowl.

The server told police she was going to have her aunt take her to get stitches.

The server has since returned to work and is going to be OK, an Outback spokeswoman said.
