    Tried to dig up some satistics, couldn't find UK data, this is US data:-


    Every 40 seconds, someone in the United States seeks medical attention for a dog  bite.

    Dog bites result in approximately 44,000 facial injuries each year.

    Children comprise 60% of the dog bite victims.

    Severe injuries occur almost exclusively in children less than 10 years of age.

    The face is the most frequent target (77% of all injures).

    Typically (77%) injuries are by friendly dogs known to the bitten person.

    Very sad, the dog has probably been the centre of attention for a long while and then suddenly a newcomer is around and it feels jealous. All speculation of course.
