DAYTON OH - UPDATE ON LITTLE TRENT WHO WAS ATTACKED IN THE MOUTH BY A PIT BULL IN JANUARY
He was the victim of a vicious pit bull attack in January but hanging out with him you'd never know it.
Little Trent is a little shy at first but you let him loose outside and he's all boy, running and having fun.
You would never know in early January, he was the victim of a vicious dog attack. But pictures snapped shortly after the incident tell the sad story. His little face nearly pulled apart in a just a few seconds.
"Just that day as he walked in the house, walked passed the dog it grabbed him and violently shook him to the ground and the damage was done," said Michael Carrico Jr., the boy's grandfather.
Damage that will mean surgery after surgery until he is likely in his 20s. And his grandfather who has dogs of his own blames a particular breed.
"I got my grandson attacked in the face, my son attacked in the face, my son over here attacked in the leg, me attacked in the arm -- ALL PIT BULL DOGS. None of them was our dog, all somebody else's dog," said Carrico Jr.
He says Trent is now scared of big dogs and they really don't want any dog too close to him after the attack that could have never been predicted.
"As soon as it happened the first thing that went through my mind: another one of my kids is attacked by one of these dogs, man," said Carrico Jr.
He offers this warning to parents about all dogs:
"Watch your kids around dogs. I don't care how long you have know them, I don't care if it's your family dog, if it's your grandma's dog, if it's your brother's dog. Watch your children around dogs. They are unpredictable. They get excited easily," he said.
Trent's next surgery is in July. The dog that attacked him was put down.
