Dudley the cocker spaniel was attacked by a roaming Staffordshire bull-terrier in the Battersea Square neighborhood of London, England. Niki Richards was walking Dudley close to home Wednesday when the attack occurred. The pit bull clamped down on Dudley’s ear and refused to let go (seen in the accompanying photo). Eventually, the pit bull’s owner arrived and beat his dog repeatedly in the head until it let go. Dudley was rushed to the local vet and had his ear sutured back together.
Forty-one-year-old Jane Greytorex entered her home only to find burglars stabbing her cocker spaniels apparently in attempts to silence them. The men wore masks and carried out their attack with a screwdriver. The cockers, Millie (11 months old) and Hardy (5 years old) managed to chase the intruders away. Fortunately, both only sustained minor injuries.
Mrs. Greytorex said she felt helpless watching the attack take place: “Millie and Hardy are the nicest, most good-natured dogs in the world, how anyone can stab animals like them is beyond me.” Both criminals remain at large. Anonymous tips can be called in at 0800 555 111.
You’ll love this story if you want to see plenty of English cocker spaniel puppies. 🙂 The Courier is reporting on a litter of eleven English cocker spaniel puppies which came unexpectedly to pet owners.
