Singleton, 29, has been charged with Section 29 (4) of the Domestic Animals Act, relating to a dog biting a person and causing a serious injury, and one count of failing to register the dog with the City of Greater Bendigo.

Singleton said she loved her dog, Rocky, and would be heartbroken to lose him.

"I'm nervous ... I'm worried he will be put down," she said. "He's my son's dog and we'd all be upset.

"Dogs are man's best friend and he's part of the family."
