Romy’s father, Daniel Griffiths, 32, looked away for a second as the boy cried out in pain and turned to find him covered in blood, after a single bite tore through his nose.
The parents say the dog, who was his son’s “best friend,” had never been aggressive before, leaving them convinced the flying toy had startled him awake and pounced on the boy’s face in shock.

Romy, who has been left with scars on her face, has to have check-ups at the hospital as she grows older due to concerns that the number of stitches in her nose will prevent her from growing with him.

The mother now hopes to warn other parents about the risks of having a dog around children, after being forced to relocate the pet she thought she could trust with her children.
Jodie said: “Even looking at him now, I can’t believe he has to live with this scar, but he’s healing beautifully.”
“I want to raise awareness and I wouldn’t recommend anyone with children to get a dog because even if it’s an accident it can still happen.”
“People love their dogs and say ‘my dog would never do that,’ but we used to say the same thing.”
After turning Blizzard over to police for relocation, the dog received a “thorough evaluation” and it was determined that he could not be relocated due to the nature of the incident, and was humanely euthanized.
