A meter reader who was mauled to death by three dogs has been identified as a fiance and lover of canines - as it's revealed the Queensland property he was visiting at the time of the attack had a sign on its fence warning visitors about the dangerous animals. 

Kane Minion, 42, was set upon by three large mixed breed dogs - including a Bullmastiff and Rhodesian Ridgeback - while visiting a house on Ison Road in the Logan suburb of Greenbank at 10.45am on Saturday.

Mr Minion had spent seven years working for Downer's Skilltech and was working as a contractor for Energex when he went to the property to read the energy meter.

A sign hung on the front gate of the property warned visitors about the dangerous animals living at the house. 

'WARNING: Guard dogs on duty do not enter,' the sign read.

Daily Mail Australia can reveal that Mr Minion had a love for canines before he met his gruesome end and that he was due to marry the love of his life Toni Baird.
