Four dogs involved in the attack of a Fort Worth toddler will be put down, city officials said Tuesday morning.

According to reports, the 18-month-old boy escaped from the house and into the fenced yard where the dogs were, though a pet door Monday afternoon.

Officials said a neighbor called 911 when she heard a woman screaming from the home on Eastland Ave. The parents of the boy were sleeping at the time the Texas dog bite injuries occurred.

The dogs that attacked the young boy were identified at Boxer breeds.

An altercation occurred as a result of the accident, causing the boy’s grandmother to be arrested and charged with assault.
