Police are investigating after a dog attack in Ramsey at the weekend which left a teenage girl shaken and another dog requiring surgery.

The girl was believed to have been walking her mother’s dog near the canal at about 5.30pm on Saturday.

Two dogs, thought to be a Staffordshire bull terrier and an Alsatian, were said to have torn into the other dog’s legs and thrown him in the water.

Appealing for information via a social networking site, the girl’s mother said both daughter and dog, which had required “hours of surgery”, were recovering.

She thanked two men who helped her daughter, as well as others for their messages, posting: “Thanks for all your support – seen the best and the worst of Ramsey in the last 24 hrs. The support is appreciated.”
