HOLIDAY (FOX 13) -

A 10-month-old baby was attacked by a neighbor's dog in Pasco County Friday afternoon, authorities said.

It happened around 2 p.m. at a home in Holiday.

Investigators say the child's mother and a neighbor were outside talking when they heard growling from inside the house. When they went in they found the dog, a pit bull breed, attacking the baby, the sheriff's office said.

The child was taken to the hospital with bite marks to his head and shoulders. There was no immediate word on his condition.

Animal services confiscated the dog for observation. There's no word yet whether any charges will be filed.
