Guide dog hurt in attack

A guide dog`s been attacked near Peterborough.

The incident happened at about 1pm on Sunday (November 6) when a man and woman were walking their Labrador across the junction of Whytefield Road and School Lane.

Another dog, thought to be a German Shepherd, ran towards them and began biting their dog around the back and neck.

The pair were unable to remove the German Shepherd from their dog and made the decision to release him so he could flee.

The incident attracted the attention of neighbours and passing motorists and two men were seen to restrain the German Shepherd.

The pair returned home and took the guide dog to the vets. It is understood his harness prevented any puncture wounds and the dog was lucky to escape with swelling and bruising.
