A young girl was injured by an emotional support dog while boarding a Southwest Airlines LUV, -1.22% flight from Phoenix to Portland, Ore., the airline confirmed. Southwest said its initial reports indicate that the dog’s teeth scraped the girl’s forehead after she approached the animal.

Luckily, paramedics checked out the girl and cleared her for the flight. The dog and its handler exited the flight, which departed 20 minutes late, Southwest said.
