A grandmother and her granddaughter suffered severe injuries after a San Jose dog bite accident.

According to The Mercury News, the four-year-old boxer/pit bull mix attacked the grandmother first. After biting the California woman’s arm, the dog then attacked the face of the 20-month-old girl. The dog ripped the granddaughter’s lip to her jaw line, revealing part of her skeletal structure.

The grandmother attempted to drive her granddaughter to the hospital after the San Jose dog bite injury, but had to call an ambulance half way there, because her California dog bite injuries were too severe.

Since this was not the first attack from Tazz, the boxer/pit bull mix, the dog has been euthanized.

The 20-month-old girl is currently recovering in a San Francisco hospital after the California dog bite accident.
