A 10-year-old girl spend 15 minutes trapped in her backyard as she was mauled by her attacking family dog at a Melbourne home last night.
The young girl suffered serious injuries, including bites and deep cuts, after her Russian BULLMASTIFF  went into attack mode in Berwick, just after 8pm yesterday.
Neighbours called for help after the girls 7-year-old sister ran onto the street and raised the alarm.
Jimmy Baird and another neighbour ran to the home, where they found the girl banging on a door trying to get away from the dog.
"We tried to get the door open. As I opened the door, this massive head was coming through the door frothing at the mouth. It was obviously going to go us."
So the two men went around to the side of the house and started banging on windows to distract the dog, allowing the girl to escape.
"I'm glad we were there because the young girl probably wouldn't have survived," Mr Baird said.
Paramedics treated the girl for serious injuries to her head, neck and groin, before taking her to The Royal Children's Hospital.
The girl remains in hospital this morning. Her condition has since improved from critical to stable.
Police confirmed the dog is the family's pet and that it has been seized by council rangers.
The two sisters had allegedly been left at home alone yesterday, after their parents went to the gym. They returned long after the attack had unfolded.
The investigation is ongoing
Berwick is about 39km south-east of Melbourne's CBD.
Bullmastiffs are a large breed of dog and their ancestry can be traced back to the English mastiff and the English bulldog.
The attack happened a day after one-year-old Kamillah was fatally mauled by a Rottweiler in the northern New South Wales town of Inverell.

I hope Australia gets smart about dangerous dogs breeds! I have far more faith in that country than I do my own.

I thought Mastiffs were such wonderful protective dogs of their families? I guess this one wasn't trained right? Blame the parents? Never leave young children alone with any dog ever in a million years, right?

The bullmastiff is a very large powerful breed of dog. These dogs should only be owned by experienced dog people and never left unsupervised with children. Personally, I don't know why people would choose this breed for a family pet. There are so many great breeds of dogs that are far safer.for children.

It sounds like the family likes big dangerous dogs. Maybe the courts should file child endangerment, child neglect, or something else to penalize parents for this stupidity. Maybe they could be charged with parental stupidity!
