Pooch who ‘didn’t stand chance’ mauled to death by dog leaving owner devastated

A woman has told of her devastation after learning her pup was mauled to death in a horrific attack by another dog.

Yorkshire Terrier, Roscoe, was savaged by a large Staffie during a walk with his owner’s mother who was also injured in the incident, Examiner Live reports.

Anna Howells, from Yorkshire, wants justice for her pup who “didn’t stand a chance” after the Staffie, who wasn't on a lead, latched itself onto her pet.

The incident was worsened by the fact that the Staffie's owner refused to take responsibility for the attack, claiming the dog wasn’t his.

Reliving the horror, Anna explained her mother had taken her dog out for a walk, when the large Staffie ran over and locked his jaws on the pup.

Anna’s Mother had her hand bitten while trying to protect her daughter’s dog.

She later received a phone call from Donaldson’s vets in Almondbury to let her know Roscoe had passed away.

Anna said: “The staff phoned me and I went up and took my mum to the A&E department in Huddersfield Royal infirmary where she was treated for her injuries.

“The man claimed the dog wasn’t his and refused to give any contact details whatsoever but alluded to the fact this wasn’t the first time this dog had attacked and in his own words ‘needed putting down’.

“This dog needs to be on a lead in the park, it’s killed other dogs and could turn on children.

“Something need to be done, little dog owners need to be able to walk their dogs in safety and no one should have to go through the heartache of their puppy being mauled to death by and out of control dog and careless owner.

“I just want to find this dog and bring this matter to justice.”

A dog-walker, who witness the horror, described the dog owner as a "middle aged white man, untidy looking with short light brown hair, and wearing a dark jacket.”

She said: “The man claimed it was a friend’s dog and she didn’t recognise the man from walking in the park but has previously seen what may or may not be the same dog with another younger white man.”
