While she was outside the infant was bitten by the sitter’s boxer-pitbull mix in the living room, police said. He was airlifted to the hospital but due to the extent of the injuries he was pronounced deceased..
The investigation is ongoing and the dog, named king, has been euthanized.
Avnah Long, the child’s grandmother, set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for funeral costs.
