EL PASO, Texas -

An 11-year-old boy is recovering in the hospital after he was attacked by a dog.

Sheriff's officials say the boy went to his neighbors house to get his little brother when the neighbor's pit bull bit him on his neck, his arms and back. He was rushed to the hospital and was in critical condition at the time.

As of Saturday night--the boy was in stable condition. We're told animal services will be taking the dog today.
