Emergency services rushed to an address on Ormesby Street just after 4.30pm local time amid reports of a horror dog attack.

The little girl reportedly suffered significant abdominal, chest and shoulder injuries after the Bull Arab breed pounced on her.

She is understood to have been on a fence adjacent to a footpath when the dog jumped up and dragged her into the front yard.

A male relative, in his 20s, bravely jumped the fence to rescue her and sustained leg injuries as the crazed dog turned on him.

He was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital for treatment in a stable condition.

The six-year-old was taken to the Queensland Children’s Hospital where she remains in a serious condition.

A dog was seen being removed from the property in wake of the terrifying attack.

Police remained on scene until around 6.30pm and said the Child Protection Investigation Unit had been notified of the incident.
