Under rules drawn up by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), it will be illegal to ‘breed, sell, advertise, exchange, gift, rehome, abandon or allow XL Bully dogs to stray’ in England and Wales from December 31.
The ban came after a series of savage fatal dog attacks.
Nottinghamshire Police said: ‘The dog, believed to be an XL Bully type, was subsequently seized from a nearby property and taken to secure kennels.
‘A 38-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of allowing a dog to be dangerously out of control.
‘The injuries sustained are not believed to be life-threatening and an investigation is ongoing to establish the full circumstances surrounding the incident.’
Any witnesses, or anyone with any information about this incident, is asked to contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 823 of November 3.
Alternatively, information can be given anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
