The 5-year-old victim of last Friday’s vicious dog attack in Jasper is recovering from injuries she sustained.

Janiah Hood is still hospitalized at Children’s of Alabama in Birmingham, but her condition has been upgraded to ‘good,’ Jasper Police Chief Connie Cooner Rowe said Tuesday.

Hood suffered severe injuries to her head when she was attacked by the dog, which was described by Rowe as a pitbull.

The owner of the dog, who has not been identified but has been cooperating with police, agreed to have the animal euthanized, according to Rowe.

The Alabama Department of Health will be examining the remains as part of a standard procedure in these types of cases.
