Omaha, NE (AP) - Authorities say a 9-year-old Omaha girl who was injured after a dog bit her in the face is out of the hospital.

Omaha police say the girl was hurt in her apartment Saturday after a family friend brought over a 1-year-old English bulldog.

Officials say the dog bit the girl in the face when she bent down to pet it. Omaha television station KETV reports the girl will need reconstructive surgery around her mouth and lips. Additional information was not released.

The Nebraska Humane Society says the dog remains in quarantine.
