Jersey dog bite appeal date set by the Royal Court
An appeal to save a dog that bit a six-year-old girl in the face in Jersey is due to be heard on 6 July.
The island's Royal Court will decide whether to back the original decision to put down Dyson, an Alsatian-Husky cross.
In April the dog, owned by Angela Melim, bit the girl's face and caused puncture wounds.
Mrs Melim has appealed against the decision claiming some evidence was not heard in the trial.
At a preliminary hearing on Thursday, Advocate Lucy Marks, representing Mrs Melim, said evidence from a dog behaviour expert had not been heard at the trial.
The prosecution Advocate Conrad Yates raised questions about a medical report that said there had been a single bite.
The Deputy Bailiff, William Bailhache, said he would allow a second opinion from another doctor to be used in the appeal as well as the fresh evidence from the dog behaviour expert.
