(WSVN) - - A 3-year-old girl was taken to the hospital after, police said, she was attacked by a large dog that had escaped from a Florida City home, Friday night.
According to Florida City Police, Sani Julian and her father, Michael Green, were walking to a nearby convenience store to buy milk when a  PIT BULL MIX  bit the girl, just before 8:30 p.m.
Investigators said the canine ran out of its residence, tore through a gate and lunged at the victim along the 1200 block of Northwest Eighth Place.
Green told 7News the dog’s owner came to help. The father and the dog’s owner tried to stop the mauling, but officials said the animal bit Sani on her back and legs.
“It took [the owner] a while to get [the dog] off, about four or five minutes,” said Green.
When asked to describe the size of the dog, Green said estimated the animal’s weight to be about “80, 75 pounds.”
Friday night, the girl was undergoing emergency surgery at Kendall Regional Medical Center after she was airlifted by Miami-Dade Fire Rescue. "Something about her appendix, they've got to cut open,"  said Green.
Sani’s father said the girl’s mother is at the hospital.
Miami-Dade Animal Services has confiscated the dog. 7News cameras captured the animal being taken out of its home and placed into a van.
Detectives interviewed the owner of the dog, as well as the girl’s father. Animal Services has charged the owner with having a loose dog, the attack on the child and not having the animal vaccinated for rabies.
Officials said additional charges may follow.

A  PIT BULL MIX  managed to escape from underneath a fence to attack a 3-year-old girl on Friday night in Florida City, according to the Florida City Police Department.
Michael Green identified the victim as his daughter Sani Julian. He said they were walking to the store when the dog attacked her, and he tried fighting the dog off to no avail. 
When Miami-Dade Fire Rescue arrived at 1211 NW 8th Place, they found the girl with wounds on her back and her leg. 
The owner of the dog apologized, Green said. Animal Services cited the owner for not having records of the dog's rabies shot and for not restraining his dog. 
MDFR airlifted the girl with her mother.

Hopefully, the additional charges will have something to do with having a pit bull in a county where there is a ban against them. Laws are worth nothing if they are not enforced.

It looks like a pit bull mastiff mix. How that huge animal could fit under the fence is mind boggling. I hate that they're calling it a "bite". It's a mauling people! When a dog bites, you don't normally see the victim's SPINE!
