The dogs, confirmed to be Dogo Argentinos, were caught and taken to a shelter, and are now awaiting a dangerous animals hearing.

It has been reported that the dog owner is cooperating with the investigation.

According to the coroner in San Bernardino County, Han "suffered major injuries during the attack and was pronounced deceased at the scene."

Dogo Argentinos were first bred for huge hunting games in Argentina and are made to take on wild boar and puma.

The American Kennel Club describes them as "large, powerful, and athletic."

The breed is prohibited in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Denmark and other countries.
