THE FOUR-year old boy who was attacked by a Rottweiler earlier this month has been released from Faro hospital and is at home recovering with his family.

The child sustained injuries to his head, limbs, face and genitals, when he was attacked by the dog in Faro.

No decision has yet been made on the fate of the Rottweiler, which for the moment remains in kennels while a report on its safety is drawn up.
