Hi M !
If that's a shark-like face, doesn't sound like a Bulldog, as they have a flat, jowly and slobbery face.
Anyhow, so much depends on how such a dog has been trained, which I think needs to include how to distinguish friend from foe, and what coes to take from his owner as to who should be trusted.
But don't play down the seriousness of the injury, I'm amazed that she didn't insist on inspecting the wound at the time, and taking you directly to a doc or casualty dept.
I agree with Britty ; if she has chosen to get and train a potentially vicious dog, she should put it in a kennel for the 2 weks, and not add danger to your burden in kindly looking after her kids. I gather they would not be welcome to be placed in a kennel, so that alternative does not apply to them.
