Abstract (Document Summary)

Santina Saba died of multiple dog bites, said Dr. Ronald Suarez, a pathologist and associate medical examiner for Suffolk County. Suarez, who performed an autopsy yesterday afternoon, said the baby was covered with bruises and bites, all made by the dog. The infant, daughter of Peter Saba, 33, and Adamys Cancel, was healthy before the attack, he said.

All three dogs were calm yesterday afternoon, [Stephen Wachman] said, and it is not known what set off the attack. Rottweilers, which are muscular, active dogs that can weigh as much as 90 pounds, are not usually quarrelsome or excitable, he said. They are sometimes trained to be cattle dogs or guard dogs and are considered faithful and affectionate, he said, quoting from American Kennel Club information.
