A 4 year old is in the hospital attacked by what was apparently the family dog.
The child was reportedly playing with the dog in the backyard of his grandfather's house when the dog attacked. It is described by a witness who did not want to be identified as a pitt bull rottweiler mix.
The child has been taken to University Medical Center with serious facial injuries. The 4 year old's current condition is not known.
The dog has been taken into custody by animal control.
