UNITED KINGDOM — A blind woman has described the moments she was left panic-stricken when her guide dog was set upon by a crazed terrier.
Jessica Hodgson, 47, was being led by two-year-old yellow Labrador cross retriever Olly along Church Road in Haydock when it was savaged by the dog that had dashed out of a nearby house.
On average, there are more than seven attacks on guide dogs each month by other dogs. This number has more than doubled since last year, with a previous study on dog attacks, published in June 2010, showing an average of three attacks per month.
It’s not OK for innocent pets and working dogs to be savaged by dog-aggressive canines. It’s time to stop defending this unnatural dog behavior and time to start thinking about ways to stem the tide of dogs bred for uncontrollable aggression toward their own kind.
