First published in News

A WOMAN has spoken of her horror after her Yorkshire terrier was attacked by two other dogs.

Claire Marshall was walking her dog Tinker along a footpath behind the Co-op in Manningtree on Friday morning when the incident took place.

Three-year-old Tinker was dragged down a steep bank by his back leg after the two dogs charged at him.

Ms Marshall said one dog was a brown terrier and the other a large grey dog.

Tinker was rushed to the High Cliff vets where it was found he had avoided breaking any bones.

Ms Marshall, who lives in Manningtree, said: “He is extremely lucky he didn’t get injured at all.”
