Paramedics rushed to the home on Hillcrest Loop Road in Svensen and they worked quickly in hopes of saving Ashlynn Anderson's life, deputies said.
A Life Flight helicopter landed in a field near the home and took the girl to OHSU hospital in Portland. Ashlynn was pronounced dead when she arrived.
The dogs have been taken to the Clatsop County animal shelter, where they were quarantined.
The attack happened four months after officers had already taken a Rottweiler from the same home after it bit another family member.
The TV show "Ax Men" focuses on a logging company.
Browning said he does not want to see any more Rottweilers, "ever again". Detectives said they plan to conduct a follow-up investigation after the family is able to grieve Ashlynn death. "This was a sad set of circumstances and a very unfortunate death," Bergin in a sheriff's office news release.
Clatsop County Medical Examiner Dr. Joanne Stefanelli will conduct an autopsy on Ashlynn's body to determine the exact cause of death.
Jay Browning, the girl's step-grandfather and owner of Browning Logging Company, said Ashlynn was a wonderful child.
"She just had so many friends. She was so bright, so pretty, and the nicest girl anyone would ever want to have. So many people just loved her. She had a bi head of blond hair and a big smile. If you were walking with her somewhere, people would comment what a doll she was," he said.
