Washington Wizards forward Kyle Kuzma’s concerns extend beyond the basketball court as the NBA season begins, as he is reportedly facing a lawsuit after his dog allegedly “viciously” bit a man.
After receiving a lawsuit TMZ Sports reported that Kuzma is being sued by a man who claims he was attacked by Kuzma’s dog on May 4 near Van Nuys Airport in California.
Bernard Tosto said Kuzma’s dog bit his right arm while walking to the aircraft cabin during a flight.
Tosto cited “serious injuries” in the lawsuit and said the NBA star “took no steps to secure the dog.”
Tosto is suing for unspecified damages.

Kuzma adopted a Siberian Husky in 2020 during the COVID-19 lockdown and named him Snoh
It is unclear whether the Siberian Husky Snoh or the Belgian Malinois Duke bit the alleged victim
The dog involved in the alleged attack is also unknown.
Kuzma, 28, has posted several pictures of his dogs on his social media since adopting his first puppy during the Covid-19 lockdown.
In 2020, Kuzma adopted a nine-week-old, white-haired Siberian Husky and named her Snoh. Kuzma then shared his excitement about having Snoh’s company while the pandemic brought the world to a standstill.
“It’s the perfect time,” Kuzma said Spectrum SportsNet in April 2020. “I’ve wanted a dog for so many years, like six, seven years.” What better time to do it than now? I have all the time in the world because I’m here and I take care of everything. It’s fun.’
Shortly thereafter, Kuzma added another canine companion. In 2021, Kuzma posted a picture of him Walking Snoh and Dukea dark-colored Belgian Malinois, near the Washington Monument in Washington DC, after being traded to the Wizards.
“Took the kids sightseeing,” Kuzma captioned.
