One of the dogs then latched onto his leg while he was trying to save his niece.

The dogs’ owner then raced outside to intervene.

Reece was also taken to hospital to be treated for the leg wound, which required 10 stitches.

The two dogs – Drago and Mazakeet – weren’t registered but were kept securely in the property’s backyard.

“We’re distraught,” dog owner Matt Hinds said.

“It wasn’t common knowledge they were dangerous dogs, but everyone knew not to enter our yard because they were guard dogs.”
