(NBC) -

A baby girl, who was just three days old, is dead after being attacked by the family dog.

A California mother set her newborn down for just a few moments early Monday when the attack happened.

She believed that the three year old male shar-pei/pitbull mix was chained in the backyard.

While she was in the bathroom, she heard screaming. The newborn, Susie Kirby, was rushed to the hospital where she died from her injuries. 

The dog, along with another dog that lived in the home, were taken to be put down.
