The mongrel dog that tore into a toddler's face in Levin on Wednesday jumped a fence and ran into a family home to attack the defenceless boy.
Jesse Gimblett, two and a half, was due to return home last night after undergoing hours of surgery to his face at Palmerston North Hospital on Wednesday night.
Witnesses say Jesse was left with severe facial lacerations and his mouth was hanging by a thread after the pit bull-labrador cross attacked him on suburban Charles Street, Levin. Read more after the jump.
