Police responded to 1206 Valley View St. at about 9:10 a.m. in reference to the attack, according to a press release. 

To protect the child, a Greensboro police officer shot and killed one dog believed to be involved in the attack.

A second dog fled and officials have since captured the dog. That dog has since been euthanized "because of the vicious nature of the attack," Guilford County Animal Services Director Drew Brinkley said.

The toddler was taken to Baptist Children's Hospital.

The investigation is ongoing.
