A small dog is nursing serious injuries after it was attacked by a much larger canine last week.
The one-and-a-half-year-old cocker spaniel was being walked by its owner along 134 Street and 80 Avenue on Friday, April 8 when a newer-model VW Beetle pulled over.
The driver and passenger appeared to be switching positions when their dog broke loose.
It’s believed to be a grey pit bull and it went straight for “Louie” the cocker spaniel.
Louie’s owner, a 70-year-old man, tried to pull the dog away, but was unsuccessful. A neighbour saw the attack and came out to intervene.
Louie was bitten about 15 times on his left side and had a punctured lung and ruptured diaphragm.
The whereabouts of the pit bull or its owner is unknown.
