An angry mum has hit out at a court’s decision to spare a dog that scarred her daughter in a terrifying attack.
Five-year-old Mackenna Frew suffered a horrific cheek injury when she was bitten by an Airedale terrier.
In March, a sheriff ordered the dog to be destroyed following the attack in May last year.
But Mackenna’s mum Kimberley Mullin has been left shaken after the dog’s owner, John Johnstone, won an appeal, allowing him to keep the animal.
A dog control notice was issued instead, meaning the terrier must wear a muzzle when out in public.
