Girl, 11, left 'scarred for life' after being bitten on her face by a dog

A GIRL of 11 was left covered in blood and “scarred for life” when a dog bit her face.

Nevaeh Mills had been playing in a park after school when she saw the German shepherd, which was on a lead.

Her mum Charlotte Kenyon has shared a photo of her daughter covered in blood in her school uniform with a bite mark on her cheek.

She is said to have asked the owner if she could stroke the hound.

But, as she extended her hand, it leapt up and bit her face in a park in Tameside, Greater Manchester, on Friday.

An air ambulance landed at the scene after emergency services were alerted just before 6pm.

Mum Charlotte Kenyon said: “I was in the play area with my youngest when Nevaeh came running over covered in blood, holding her face.

“Her friends said, ‘She’s been bitten by a big dog’.

“Nevaeh is 11 and has facial scarring now for the rest of her life.

“She doesn’t want to leave the house and is now scared of any dog.”

Nevaeh is now recovering at home after she was taken to hospital and treated for minor injuries.
