Woman’s ‘friendly’ dog attacked on walk
10:00am Monday 10th March 2014 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.”
