A six-year-old boy has suffered serious head injuries after being attacked by a dog in Odemira in southern Portugal.

The attack took place last Thursday evening, with the boy taken to a Lisbon Hospital due to the nature of the injuries sustained.

Rescue services said the attack happened while the boy was playing with his grandfather’s Alentejo Mastiff, a large breed of dog, but which is not considered a potentially dangerous breed.
