Dog attack on young child
Obviously, I know this street well and live not to far away and walk up and down the street regularly.
Whilst there are rumours out there with what happened and what type of dog it is I thought I would write what I am hearing, from a good source. The children where out playing and having fun in the garden on a trampoline and when one of the children was called in the house and the back door was open that is when the dog got out and ran straight for the trampoline and carried out the attack. The child was doing nothing wrong but just having fun on a trampoline.
The Police have not confirmed yet if the dog is banned breed and we will have to wait for them to say one way or another. But there are asking for people to come forward with any information. You can call them on or crime stoppers on 0800 555 111.
For me the important issue is for this little lad to get better soon. Our thoughts are with him and his family.
