On 7th March 2021, my beautiful border collie, Blue, was attacked and mauled by 2 cane corso dogs that escaped from their garden. (We were walking on the opposite side of a busy road).
The owners were present in garden too and were witness but could not control the dogs.
I tried to get the attacking dog off but was unsuccessful. All the while, i kept hold of Blue and fought for him.My Blue was left unable to stand or walk had 3 puncture wounds and bleeding into his abdomen.
Blue died, later that evening. Police deemed the dogs as “not dangerous ” and no criminal offence regarding a dog on dog attack.
My family have been left distraught and i am traumatised by the event.
The law needs to change, making dog attacks a criminal offence and more robust actions enforced on owners.
