Lake in the Hills police said Analise Garner, 19, returned home after a night of drinking around 4 a.m. Sunday and allegedly bit the family's English bulldog three times while arguing with her mother, WBBM-AM, Chicago, reported Tuesday.
Police said Garner also allegedly bit her mother's right hand and scratched her on the side of her face.
The dog allegedly bit Garner back on the left arm.
"The dog was defending himself," police Sgt. Mark Smith said. "She'd already bit him a few times. The dog was not charged."
Garner was charged with animal cruelty, two counts of domestic battery and underage drinking. She was released Monday on $3,000 bond.
