What happens if a dog has bit you really bad above the eye? Should it get put down or the owner find?

the dog has bitten four others before myself.

Go to the hospital first. They should call the police for you. That way you not only have a record of the dog attack but you can get antibiotics. You always need antibiotics if bitten by a human or animal. Give the police the names and/or addresses of the other people attacked so you can all press charges against the owner. If all comes through they will probably force them to put down the animal.

The dog was probably not trained well. You CAN have him personally trained. Most dogs bite out of being scared.

If a dog bites you and has previously bit others, you may need to report the matter to the authorities and record a statement. If the dog bit you outside the owner's compound, the dog may be put down. You should also seek medical attention for the injuries inflicted.

The owner should be "found" and call the police.

Report to the Police. Go to a doctor. Go to a lawyer.

The dog gets seized, and either rehomed or put down depending on the case. The owner also gets fined and possible jail time.

Either way, you need to go to the hospital and report the dog bite.

The authorities will need to know if the dog has rabies, so a test will be done on the dog first I think.
