NELSON, LANCASHIRE ENGLAND - A FAMILY AMERICAN BULLDOG ATTACKED THEIR 14-MONTH-OLD GIRL

Brunswick Street, Nelson

A 14-month-old baby girl was airlifted to hospital in a serious condition after being mauled by her family's pet dog , according to police .
The tiny youngster, who has not been named, suffered serious cuts in the attack by their  JOHNSON AMERICAN BULLDOG  on Wednesday morning.
Officers raced to the house in Nelson, Lancashire, and she was rushed to the Royal Blackburn Hospital before later being transferred to the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital.
Police sources today confirmed the small child was currently stable and her wounds were described as "serious cuts".
Upset neighbours said they were shocked by the incident, with one woman resident explaining how she saw the emergency services arrive around 10am on Wednesday.
She said: "I saw two police cars and two emergency ambulance cars at a house on the street.
"I didn't see the helicopter, but there were a lot of paramedics on the ground around the house.
"It's terrible to hear about what's happened, you don't expect a young girl to be bitten by a dog around here."
The American Bulldog is a legal breed in the UK and a powerful working dog.
The names associated with the Bully and Standard types are those of the breeders who were influential in developing them, John D. Johnson (Bully) and Alan Scott (Standard).
The four dog breeds banned in the UK are the Pit Bull Terrier; the Japanese Tosa; the Dogo Argentino; and the Fila Brasileiro.
Officers said the family dog was kept in the house until transport arrived to take it to police kennels where it remains.

People writing laws need to wise up to the "name game" played by breeders and peddlers of aggressive dogs. "Pit Bull Type" would work wonders.
