The young lad had been playing outside his house before heading to his pal’s house on a neighboring street when the horror unfolded.

Once inside, he was attacked by the dog named “Beast”.

This week, Jack’s mother, Emma Whitfield, clutched a teddy bear and cried as the details of her son’s death were read.

In a statement on the impact of the victim, she said: “No mother should ever have the final images of her child being dragged out of a home, knowing deep down they are gone but praying they are not.

“I close my eyes and see the animal and its teeth. I hear the barking

“I used to be cheerful, bubbly and fun, but now I’m a nervous wreck.

“I’m angry because my kid went out to play and didn’t come home.

“I’m trapped in what used to be our family home. It’s broken now and will never be the same.”

“I keep asking, ‘Why my boy? Why Jack?’ I would have given my life to protect him, but I couldn’t do that because he wasn’t in a familiar place.

“He was at a friend’s house, a house where he should have been safe.”

His father, John Lis, added: “Losing a child is heartbreaking, to say the least, but losing a child in such a horrific, unimaginable way is something no one could come to terms with or accept.

“Jack was 10 years old and had his whole life ahead of him, but that was taken from him.”

Owners Brandon Hayden, 19, and Amy Salter, 29, have admitted to being responsible for the dog that killed Jack Lis, ten, of Pentwyn, Penyrheol, near Caerphilly in November.

KILL DOG

Hayden, 19, was sentenced to four years and six months in prison, while Salter, 29, was sentenced to three years.

Both were banned from owning a dog indefinitely.

Hayden had seen the dog being promoted “free” on Facebook, with a warning that he was “not good with other dogs”.

Tragedy struck when the angry animal killed schoolboy Jack at a property near his home.

He had been playing with a buddy after school when they went to the house where Beast was roaming downstairs.

Prosecutor Gareth James said the friend watched in horror as Beast pushed Jack to the ground with his “paws on Jack’s shoulders”.

Mr James said: “He went to help Jack but realized immediately he couldn’t.”

The friend then ran to neighbor Kirk Wiegold’s home in a desperate attempt to get help.

Mr. Wiegold tried to get in but could only open the door “a fraction” and was taken aback by the horrifying scene.

Emergency services rushed to the address, but Jack was tragically pronounced dead.

Mum Emma stood outside as neighbors gathered before she was broken the devastating news by police.

Beast was later shot dead by firearms officers at the scene as horrified residents gathered outside.

Hayden issued a prepared statement in the interview, claiming that the dog belonged to Salter “as far as he was concerned.”

The court heard he was at the scene after the attack and apparently “freaked out” before leaving when police arrived.

Mr James said: “He said he would never forget the images he saw and couldn’t get them out of his head.”

Salter and Hayden admitted to being responsible for a dog that got dangerously out of control and caused injuries resulting in death.

Hayden also admitted to being responsible for a dangerously out of control dog on an additional three counts and being the owner of a dog who caused injury while being dangerously out of control in a public place on two counts.
