Police were called to Perricoota Road near the Murray River after a nine-year-old boy was found with what police said were "serious dog bite injuries".

A woman in her 20s, who's related to both boys, has been arrested and is being questioned by police.

A woman has been charged with attempted murder for allegedly trying to drown her son, a court has heard.

In an emotional police press conference on Friday afternoon, Deniliquin Local Area Commander Superintendent Paul Condon said the mother was also bitten by the dog.

The woman did not apply for bail and was transferred into the custody of NSW Police.

It heard that the mother took her sons to the water's edge and demanded that the eldest boy get in the water, the Bendigo Advertiser reported.

The woman allegedly turned to the younger son, while the older son managed to struggle free before he was attacked by a dog.

The Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne said he is in a critical condition.
