The crew remarked that despite her injuries, the girl was very brave about her condition."Copyright © PA Business 2008Katrina Elsey from law firm Irwin Mitchell said: "Unfortunately, many dog attacks occur in the owners own home and therefore it is important for owners to ensure that children are not left alone with the family pet at anytime as dogs can be unpredictable."People who own dogs that are potentially dangerous need to consider the consequences of failing to heed the risks to others. As well as owners supervising children with the dog at home it is also necessary to teach them how to act around the dog as simple measures can be taken to avoid dog attacks at home."
