One neighbor described the dogs as "bad."

The man said, "I've seen them on these dogs, and they're malicious, and I'll show my teeth."

Reuben's parents were arrested for suspected child negligence and released on bail by December 15th.

The police spokesman said: "We were called by the rescue service at 1.47 am (Sunday 18 November) to address Yaxley, with reports of concern about a child who was attacked by a dog.

"Officers and health workers attended the scene, and the child was taken to Peterborough City Hospital before being transferred to Addenbrooke Hospital in Cambridge with life-threatening injuries.

"It remains in critical condition.

"A 28-year-old woman and a 31-year-old man, both of Yaxley, were arrested for suspicion of child negligence and rescued by December 15.

"Two dogs, the Staffordshire Bull Terriers, were taken from property and are in police kennels.

"The police remain in place and the investigation has begun."

Under British law, the law on dangerous dogs [1991] prohibits four dogs from ownership or breeding.

These are Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino and Fila Brasileiro.

Often confused with the banned Pit Bull Terrier breed, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier is not banned in Great Britain, although some call it "dangerous".

The government advises owners that it is against the law that every dog ​​is "dangerously out of control".

Dogs are considered dangerously out of control if someone hurts or causes someone to be afraid of being injured.

A person could face an unrestricted penalty and / or be sent to prison for six months if the dog is dangerously out of control.

A long prison can be expected if their dog injuries or someone kills.
