Eight-year-old Yin Yin was walking to her aunt and uncles home on the 16th of February when the aggressive animal approached her.
The young girl tried to run away but the beast charged at her and knocked her to the floor.
It latched on to her left leg and aggressively dragged her around the road, before tearing on her arm.
Yin Yin is seen trying to escape the animal, scanning her surroundings for anyone who might be able to help her.
But as the confronting video shows, the pit bull overpowered her time and time again, flipping the girl over to attack her arms after she tried to kick its face and crawl away.
The terrifying attack goes on for more than a minute, before a witness finally came to her rescue.
Armed with a stick, the saviour hit the dog to release its grip on the young girl.
Undeterred, the pit bull tried to approach her again before finally leaving a traumatised Yin Yin seriously injured on the road.
Yin Yin suffered a broken arm and leg, serious lacerations and bites on her left leg below the knee.
She has undergone six operations in the month since the attack.
Her medical bills have cost her family more than 160,000 RMB (£17,900), which they have begged and borrowed from friends and relatives.
The dog’s owner, who has not been named, has compensated the family just 37,000 RMB (£4,140).
