An 80-year-old man’s Yorkshire terrier has suffered ‘significant injuries’ after it was attacked by a teenage girl’s Rottweiler and labrador in Royston.
Police are appealing for witnesses following the attack which took place at about 12 noon yesterday when the man was walking his dog on a lead along Burns Road, near to Elliott Road.
It is believed that the girl was picking something up when she lost her balance and her two dogs – which were on extendable leads – ran to attack the man’s dog.
The Yorkshire terrier suffered significant injuries which require surgery.
The man was not injured but ‘became unwell’ following the attack. A passer-by stopped to help him and take his dog to the vets.
