An 8-year-old girl was hospitalized Sunday after police say a pit bull-boxer mix bit her in the face.
Police say Raelynn Liming was staying the night with a friend at the Greenbriar Mobile Home Park in the 200 block of Seton Court when the attack happened.
Officials said Liming was sitting on the floor watching television at about 9:50 p.m. when the dog walked up to her without any warning and bit her on the face near her lower lip, causing an open wound.
The dog’s owners were able to restrain the animal during the attack, police said.
Liming was taken to Clermont Mercy Hospital where she was then flown to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. Officials have not released her condition.

Clermont County Animal Control was notified and the owner was issued a quarantine order until animal control officials can take possession of the dog.
This incident happened within hours of another pit bull attack that killed a 7-month-old baby in Dayton.
