A young boy aged 9 was at his friends house when their German shepherd cross attacked his face.
The dog, which was unprovoked, clamped his jaw around the boys face, taking a chunk out of his lip and dragged his paw down his cheek causing multiple cuts and bleeding.
The boy was rushed to hospital and had to be put under anaesthetic in order to receive numerous stitches to his face.
The boy now suffers with unsightly noticeable scarring to his lip.
