On Thursday in Cota, Cundinamarca, the kid was attacked while at home with her family.
The dog's breed is unknown, however local news Noticias Caracol said that it left its owner's home before breaking into the child's residence.
The incident is being looked into by the local authorities, who want to know how the dog got into the child's house in the first place.
According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, one in five of these bites require medical attention
this is despite the fact that the vast majority of dogs will never attack a human being.
Dog bites rarely kill, although they can gravely harm or kill children
CDC data suggests 33 Americans died from dog attacks annually between 1999 and 2020.
This tragedy comes weeks after a pitbull mauled three youngsters aged seven, 12, and 16 in Engativá, Colombia, on June 28.
