Baby recovering after being mauled by family dog at Brisbane home

A 15-month-old boy is recovering after undergoing surgery to facial injuries sustained whilst being attacked by his family dog in Brisbane’s north.

The young boy was bitten on the face and neck by the family’s Border Collie Kelpie cross breed pet about 10.45am Sunday.

It’s believed the dog became over-excited while playing with the young child.


The boy was treated at the scene before being taken to the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital where he remains in a stable condition with non-life threatening injuries.

The dog remains impounded while an investigation is carried out.
