Our puppy was savaged in front of us by another dog and died

DEAR DEIDRE: OUR puppy was savaged in front of us by another dog – and it was the most horrific thing I’ve ever seen.

Our two daughters, nine and seven, saw it too and are inconsolable. I’m 45 and my wife is 40.

We were having a family walk along the river when this massive dog jumped out in front of us and set upon our five-month-old cocker spaniel.

All we could do was stroke his head as he passed away.

The owner of the other dog took off straight after the attack. I want to make sure the same doesn’t happen to another dog.

What can I do?

DEIDRE SAYS: I’m so sorry your puppy met with such a violent end. Please contact the police.

You can also contact your council’s Dog Warden department to make them aware of this aggressive dog.

You and your children could well benefit from counselling after seeing such a horrific incident.

I’m sending my leaflet on Counselling to help.
