A photo of Judge Beatrice Bolton's pet Georgina appears on the social networking site, along with the message "I am a very beautiful German shepherd dog looking for friends both GSDs and humans".

Northumbria Police took Georgina and another dog into custody "to assure public protection" following a third allegation of an attack within a year near the judge's home outside Rothbury, Northumberland.

In December, she stormed out of Carlisle Magistrates' Court after she was convicted of failing to control her dog after it attacked her neighbour's sunbathing son.

She branded the decision a "f****** travesty" and has not sat at Newcastle Crown Court since.

In April the Royal Mail suspended deliveries to her home and neighbouring addresses after a postman was bitten. Judge Bolton was arrested and questioned by police.

She was held again after a 22-year-old was allegedly attacked on June 1 near her home.

On the Facebook site, the dog's favourite quotations were said to be "Woof", "I'm hungry" and "It wasn't me who stole your slipper".

The site, in the name Georgina Elizabeth Woodcock, claimed her status is "In a relationship" and she has 19 Facebook friends.

The Facebook page was set up months before Georgina attacked the sunbathing neighbour at the end of May last year.
