A golden retriever sank its teeth into the arm of a baby and pulled her into a safety gate – before the girl’s shocked grandmother rescued her.
The terrifying incident happened while Isabelle Binns was staying at her grandmother Julie Booth’s home in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, on Friday, January 25.
Isabelle, aged one, was captured on the home’s CCTV being pulled with such force that the gate came off its hinges.

Isabelle placed her hand near a safety gate – only for the dog to grab her arm with its teeth.
The gate fell on the dog and Julie was able to pull the baby away from the dog.
She was left with five deep puncture wounds to her arm as a result of the attack by the dog, which was was staying at the home while it waited to be sheltered.
The distressing video was caught CCTV and has been shared to Lincolnshire Live by Isabelle’s father, Michael Binns.
Describing the shocking incident, Mr Binns, 25, said: ‘My partner and I went out on Thursday night so we left our daughter with her grandma.
‘Isabelle was all right overnight. My partner [Chelsea] got the call from her mum as I was back at work as a LIVES first aid responder.
‘The dog dragged her through the safety gate and bit into her arm.
‘She was used as a the battering ram for the safety gate.
‘My daughter was screaming the house down, I can imagine it was quite frightening for a one-year-old.’
She was left with five deep puncture wounds to her arm as a result of the attack by the dog , which was was staying at the home while it waited to be sheltered.

After learning what had happened, her worried parents were keen to make sure their child was okay.
He added: ‘My partner went round said her arm was punctured and bleeding.
‘I had to leave quickly and cleaned it up before the ambulance got there.’
The little girl was taken to hospital and has since been given the all clear – and her father doesn’t think there will be any long-term damage.

Meanwhile, the dog has since been put down by the company who arranged the fostering, according to Mr Binns.
He said: ‘It was a golden retriever so it was quite a surprise as they are usually quite nice.
‘Luckily enough she doesn’t seem traumatised. Her auntie came round with a poodle the next day and Isabelle went straight up to it and stroked it.
‘I don’t know if it will be different if it is a golden retriever.’
Mr Binns has been left unhappy after claiming the police officer who attended said that the dog didn’t need to be put down, but just left with owners away from families – a comment Mr Binns says is ‘absolutely shocking’.
