GoFundMe Account Established for Nashua Child Attacked by Dogs 

A GoFundMe account has been established to help with medical bills for a six-year-old Nashua girl attacked by four dogs over the Labor Day weekend.

The Chickasaw County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call about the incident on Panama Street in Nashua shortly before 4 p.m. Saturday, September 3rd. The 6-year-old suffered injuries to the head and neck in the attack involving four Wheaten Terriers. She was transported by helicopter to the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital for medical treatment.

The four Terriers were to be euthanized by a veterinarian. 

The child was not identified by the sheriff’s office, but social media posts have indicated the girl is Madison Hanson, daughter of Katelyn Paxson and Randy Hanson. 

A description of the GoFundMe account says Madi “immediately went into surgery to begin repair of the multiple areas on her body that were injured.” As of 2 p.m. Friday, just over $7,000 had been raised for hospital and travel expenses, with a goal of $10,000. A link to the account can be found here.

Friends and family have been updating the girl’s recovery through the Facebook page, Miss Madison’s Road to Recovery.
