Thank you for help after dog attack

I would just like to thank all the people who helped me when one of my dogs was attacked by a Staffordshire Bull Terrier at North Shields Fish Quay.

Thanks especially to the lady who offered to drive us to the vets, the gentleman who gave me a towel and the lady who held my other dogs. Your help was much appreciated at such a frightening time.

Doggy is now stitched up and sporting a lovely haircut.

Unfortunately I didn’t manage to get the other owner’s details as they disappeared quickly, after arguing with bystanders.

I doubt that if I was given contact details they would prove to be false. So thanks for £160 vet’s bill. What is more worrying is that the couple had two little boys with them.

The explanation for the attack was ‘because my dog had a ball’.

I pleaded with the woman that if her dog can attack another because it had a ball, she should seriously consider allowing her children anywhere near such a dangerous dog.
