The first picture of the dog that is believed to have viciously attacked a four-year-old boy in Liverpool at the weekend has emerged.

Officers were called to Wellesbourne Place in Norris Green at around 7pm on Saturday, August 13 to reports of a dog attack, according to Merseyside police.

The boy, who is believed to have been visiting a friend’s house, suffered ‘significant’ injuries to his head and face in the attack and is now in a serious but stable condition.

A 31-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of being in charge of an out-of-control dangerous dog causing injury and has been released on bail pending further enquiries.

The boy escaped life-threatening injuries thanks to brave and quick-thinking neighbours, who yanked the frenzied hound away from the four-year-old before scooping him up and rushing him to hospital.

The dog in question was seized in the aftermath of the attack and work is currently ongoing to identify the breed, though it appears to be at least part pit bull.

Detective Inspector Neil Dillon said earlier today: ‘This was a horrendous attack on a four-year-old boy and it is only as a result of the swift actions of a brave neighbor that this young boy is still alive.

‘The four-year-old has sustained significant injuries to his head and face.

‘I would like to reassure everyone that we are working tirelessly to establish the full circumstances of the incident.

‘If you were in the area of ​​Wellesbourne Place at around 7pm and witnessed anything, or have any information about the dog in question then please come forward to speak to one of our officers.

‘Our officers take the issue of dangerous dogs very seriously. Over the past years we have worked proactively with the five local authorities in Merseyside to ensure prohibited dogs are taken off the streets.’

Dillon continued: ‘People who own or care for dogs should always make sure they are on a lead in public and should consider whether they need to be muzzled.

‘It’s also a good idea to get your dog micro-chipped so that it can always be traced if it is lost, or escapes.

‘If you keep your dog in the garden, you must make sure that the fencing is properly maintained so they can’t escape.’

If you witnessed the incident or have any information, please contact Merseyside Police social media desk via Twitter @MerPolCC or Facebook Merseyside Police Contact Centre.
