The mother of a three-year-old boy says she thought her son was going to die after he was attacked by a dog.
Trafford Jackson-Poole needed 100 stitches to his face and was left with a fractured eye socket after he was mauled by the Japanese Akita.
His mother says the dog should be destroyed after Trafford was left with a four inch wound, likely scarring him for life.
Trafford-James was mauled by a Japanese Akita dog at the Nag's Head pub in Newbold near Chesterfield in Derbyshire, after walking away from his parents.
The three-year-old underwent immediate surgery to his face, carried out by a plastic surgeon.
The force of the bite also left him with a fractured eye socket.
He will need a further operation later this month to remove some of the damaged skin but Trafford's mother says the dog should be put down before it attacks again.
The family say they have regularly seen the dog behind the bar but Marston's the brewery which owns the Nag's Head would only comment to confirm that police are investigating.
In the meantime Trafford-James is still having nightmares about the attack and may face more surgery in the future.
