One pensioner recalled fearing she was “finished” when a “Pitbull-esque” dog started mauling her head and face.

Jacqueline McGrew, 75, had turned up next door to retrieve kitty litter her neighbor bought for her when she was attacked by his son’s dog last week.

She said: “I thought I was done. i thought i had it It was a bloodbath. I was covered in blood. It was a real mess.

“I could feel the dog biting my head, right down to my skull. Then it hit my nose. I screamed in pain. I must have been trying to get the dog off me because it bit my arm too.’

Jacqueline, from Blackburn, Lancashire, suffered deep lacerations to her scalp, as well as a broken jaw and dislocated nose.

Police suspect it was a pit bull-type dog.

Jacqueline told the Mirror that she had no idea it was outside when she went into the garden, adding that if she had known she never would have.

Luckily, the neighbor jumped on the dog and pinned him to the ground before he could do any more damage, and a paramedic living nearby took her to the hospital.

The dog, named Kia, who was devastating her was one of two confiscated by police, the newspaper reports.

Jacqueline said: “I’m an animal lover but with this dog I’d say skip it. There’s no way I can imagine that dog roaming around.”
