TV Host Dr. Phil Sued Over Dog Attack

Although he’s known for dispensing tough love and homespun advice on his popular television talk show, it appears that he’s better at dealing with humans than with his own animals, at least according to a lawsuit filed by beauty expert Janet Harris.

The suit alleges that during a 2009 visit Harris paid to Dr. Phil’s home in Beverly Hills, she was suddenly attacked by Maggie, the family’s Jindo, a Korean dog breed. The attack led to numerous injuries on her arm and hand. The suit further alleges that Dr. Phil delayed seeking medical attention for Harris, as he was afraid that press coverage of the incident would harm his reputation.
