A villainous dog that had torn the face of an 11-year-old boy was laid down on Sunday.
The child was admitted to the hospital with facial injuries after the family's doberman cross attacked him when he played in the backyard of his home on the northwest suburbs of Melbourne on Saturday afternoon.
The boy was expected to come home this afternoon.
Police said the dog (pictured through the fence) is expected to be removed by city councilors

Emergency services were called to the Cairnlea house on Saturday at 3.20 pm following reports of an 11-year-old boy bitten by a dog.
He was taken to the Royal Children's & # 39; s Hospital in a serious but stable condition.
Neighbor Phillipa Giarrusso told it Herald Sun. the family, destroyed by the attack, were nice neighbors.
& # 39; They are a very nice family, we just say hello, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; He is a nice boy.
& # 39; He is always looking for children to play on the street. & # 39;
The unregistered black dog, presumably an adolescent, was removed from the property by council animal management officials who had been called to assist the police.
It resisted the belt when it got to see the city bus after it was brought on the line by a man who he thought was the owner.
Rangers helped the dog with a towel in the bus of the municipality, after he failed to make the dog jump into the vehicle.

The owner was then comforted by the police while he was crying.
He was in tears when he had loaded the dog into the van and was comforted by a police officer.
Giarrusso said the dog was often aggressive and she was afraid she would jump over the fence to attack her two-year-old grandson.
