WYLIE, Tex. — A Wylie police officer's canine partner bit his 2-year-old daughter Wednesday night, police officials said.

Rexy, a German shepherd being trained to join the police force, was running after a soccer ball. So was Officer Matt Miller's daughter.

The dog bit the girl on the back of the head, near her neck, and had to be pulled away. The girl was rushed to Medical Center of Plano, where she received stitches. Her parents expected her to be released from the hospital Friday, Wylie Police Chief Jeff Butters said.
