The mother of a four-year-old girl mauled to death by the family bulldog was not told the animal was aggressive by the rehoming centre, an inquest has heard.
Jodi Hudson told the hearing an advert at the Willow Tree Rehoming Centre in Barrow upon Soar, Leicestershire, said the Aylestone bulldog was not suitable to be around young children but staff told her that was due to its size rather than because it was aggressive.
She said no one from the centre visited her home in Mountsorrell, Leicestershire, before she collected the dog.
But Ms Hudson told the inquest there was "no sign of aggression" from the animal in the weeks leading up to the attack.
