A Byrneville resident was airlifted to a Pensacola hospital in critical condition Friday night after being bitten by their dog.

The incident happened about 8:45 p.m. on Raines Road. The 50-year old victim was reportedly attacked by their own dog, an English Mastiff, and suffered serious wounds to their arms and abdomen.

Further details have not been released.

An English Mastiff is a very large breed of dog, with mature males weighting between 150 and 240 pounds.
