The attack happened Sunday afternoon at a home east of Colorado Springs. Rescuers say the little girl was bitten on the left side of her face. She will require major reconstructive surgery to repair the damage.

A relative of the baby owned the animal. That person was issued a summons and the dog was taken into custody by the Humane Society.
