Uno, a two-year-old white male pitbull, had been left in ------'s care when her son joined the Army. Another pitbull-type dog, a bitch called Lita, was given to John-Paul's father to look after.
The family considered the grandmother was unable to look after both dogs, the court previously heard.
The little boy had woken up at around midnight and said he was hungry so his grandmother went to get him a packet of crisps.
By the time she returned John-Paul was already asleep again so she opened the crisps to give them to the dog.
But as she did, Uno pounced at John-Paul. She tried to force the dog off her grandson and was attacked herself as a result.
Tragic on so many levels.
