A pet owner in the lehigh valley now faces charges for a violent dog attack last month.

A Great Dane mauled a five-year-old boy from Whitehall Township, Lehigh County.

The child was at a friend's home when it happened.

The boy's aunt says he needed almost 50 stitches.

The owner of the Great Dane, 39-year-old Rebecca Frey, now faces two violations.

One is for having a dangerous dog and the other is for failing to keep the animal confined.
