Andrew McGowan, 35, pleaded guilty at Liverpool Magistrates Court to being responsible for the dogs, which weigh up to 11 stone and left the toddler with 'life changing injuries'.
McGowan has been bailed, on the condition he does not keep any more dogs, but faces up to two-and-a-half years in prison when he is sentenced on June 6 at Liverpool Crown Court. McGowan, from Toxteth had been breeding a large number of dogs, which were kept in an 'insecure' pen.How large a number of dogs?
Merseyside Police have confirmed that there were 11 of the animals in the three-bedroom, mid-terraced property next door.Ugh! Fancy living next door to that...
Police seem to be baffled by some pretty obvious facets of the case, if their spokesman is any indication:
...what we do know is that the dogs are, what we believe at this time, is that the dogs are American Bully dogs, and we need to do some more inquiries to establish exactly what the nature of that dog is.Oh, I think you can tell that from the sort of people who desire to keep them, can't you?
