A manicurist who claims she was attacked by country singer Tanya Tucker’s dog is suing the singer for $300,000.
Danielle D. Hobbs alleges in a lawsuit filed last week that the dog ran from a bedroom at Tucker’s home and began biting her without any warning.
She said she suffered painful and disfiguring scars on her leg.
Hobbs said she was attacked May 2, 2006, by a dog named Bella while she was at Tucker’s home near Nashville to give her a manicure.
She said Tucker has at least eight dogs, and several of them growled and barked at her during two previous visits to the home.
“This lawsuit comes as a total surprise and has been filed without merit,” Tucker’s publicist, Kirt Webster, said Tuesday.
Tucker’s hits include “Delta Dawn” and “San Antonio Stroll.”
