A MAN has been arrested over the XL bully dog attack on an 11-year-old girl.

Ana Paun and her older sister Geneza, 18, were out shopping in Bordesley Green, Birmingham, when the beast went for her.

In a terrifying video of the attack, Ana is seen being grappled to the floor by the hound which had "broken free from its collar" leaving her with shoulder and arm injuries.

The alarming footage, taken last Saturday, then shows two men rushing to intervene before they are bitten themselves.

West Midlands Police said today: "A 60-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of possessing a dog dangerously out of control.

"He has been bailed with conditions while enquiries continue."

The force confirmed the dog remains in secure kennels.

The girl's mother Monica, 32, said that her daughter could have been killed and argued that "these dogs should be away from people."

In powerful testimony since, the brave youngster has called for the dog breed to be banned.

She said: "At the time I just felt panic. The dog was staring at me. He jumped on my arm and bit me. It was so scary.

"I was screaming. He let my arm go and then bit my shoulder.

"I feel a bit better now. I went with the ambulance. I want him [the dog] to go away, to die.

"I think all of the dogs, the bulldogs, all of them should be banned."

Cllr Nicky Brennan, the city's community safety and equalities lead, said she has been advised of a decision to humanely kill the animal in a briefing from West Midlands Police community safety team on Tuesday.

"The briefing detailed that a decision was taken that the dog will be destroyed," she said.

"There's no other option but to take this action with the dog. It's a shame."

Home Secretary Suella Braverman also said she had commissioned "urgent advice" on whether the canines could be outlawed.

She argued the breed was a "clear and lethal danger" to children.

The animals have been linked to nine deaths – including three children – since 2021.
