He was acquitted. Double jeopardy means he cannot be charged for that crime.
What if they charged him with a different crime?
From Cornell law school, defines double jeopardy: The Double Jeopardy Clause in the Fifth Amendment to the US Constitution prohibits anyone from being prosecuted twice for substantially the same crime. [end quote]

Any charges stemming from the dog's attack on the lady is substantially the same crime. Would not be allowed.
