ON Friday, January 4, our collie/spaniel was attacked at the bottom of Atherfield Road, Lower Brownhill, by a brown staffie, which did not have a collar or owner present.

The staffie was taken to Warren Kennels and our dog had his neck ripped, which needed treatment by vets (he stopped breathing twice in the operation).

He is still not out of the woods and might need another operation.

If any owner is missing a staffie, they might have the decency to come forward.
