A police officer is facing surgery after being bitten on the face by a dog during an arrest in Sydney.

Police attended a property in Georges Hall in the city's south-west at about 1.30am today after reports of a domestic incident.

A 52-year-old man had barricaded himself in the garage with a dog.

He was arrested and the dog ran into the street.

It was secured by a 59-year-old woman also at the property, but as a police sergeant was speaking to her, the dog attacked and bit the officer on the face.

He was taken to hospital where he remains in a stable condition, awaiting surgery.

The dog was seized by council officers.
