An animal suspected of being a wolf-dog hybrid has been returned to its owner pending DNA test results.

The dog was first taken into custody in May after biting a child.

Officials with the Wisconsin Humane Society Green Bay Campus confirmed to Local Five that the dog was kept on a 10-day bite quarantine, and has been released as any other dog would be.

A DNA test is currently pending.

If the results of that test reveal that the dog is indeed a wolf hybrid, officials say additional steps will be taken.
