It must have been a big dog with a large mouth to have done such damage. Whatever dog did this must have returned home absolutely covered in blood.
The parents of a two-year-old boy who was mauled by a dog in Swindon say it was a miracle he survived. Doctors gave Kieron Guess a fifty-fifty chance of living following the attack last month. He has now returned back home home and we have the first pictures of his recovery.

The parents of a toddler who was mauled by a dog have described the moment they were told he might not survive his injuries.
Two year-old Keiron Guess was attacked after wandering into a neighbour's garden earlier this month.
He's had weeks of reconstructive surgery but his parents say he's getting stronger by the day.
Eli-Louise Wringe reports:
Police in Swindon are continuing to investigate a dog attack on two-year-old Kieron Guess on Sunday.
He was taken to Frenchay Hospital in Bristol with serious facial injuries after the incident in a neighbour’s garden.
Our thoughts are with Kieron and his family at what must be a particularly traumatic time and everyone at Wiltshire Police wishes Kieron a speedy recovery.
Any investigation must remain within the framework of the law and in this case theDangerous Dogs Act 1991 does not apply because the dog was on private premises at the time of the incident.
In this case the animal was voluntarily surrendered to the police and was examined and found to be a Staffordshire bull terrier. It is not illegal to own a Staffordshire bull terrier.
However the dog was destroyed with the full consent of the owner.
Wiltshire Police continue to make enquiries into all aspects of this incident.
We can confirm that we attended the address where the incident happened in September 2011 and two dogs were subsequently examined to determine whether they were illegally bred.
A qualified expert examined both dogs and found that they were Staffordshire bull terriers and that the owners were lawfully in possession. No offences were revealed in relation to these dogs.
