A nine-month-old girl is now in the hospital after she was attacked by a family dog. Police say the little girl was visiting relatives off Hannon and Gulf Bank in northwest Houston. That's when the dog -- a Labrador -- bit the child on the face and ears.

Animal control took the dog into custody. Investigators say the little girl may need reconstructive surgery. There's no word on her condition right now.
