"Annika Jönsson, 46, was out walking the dog Billy when another dog – which was three times more went to the attack. After it disappeared the owner of the unplugged dog and Billy was left bloody and injured. "
"I just thought, ”may he not die,” says Annika," she says. "
"on Saturday night, Annika was out with the family dog Billy for a walk in Sjöbo, Skåne, sweden. It was a short one – which ended with an emergency visit to the vet. "
"it All starts with Annika saw a dog running loose. A few metres after passing a person who seems to be the owner of it, and she thinks nothing more of it. "
"– Then I see in the corner of my eye how this dog takes off with Billy in full force, " says Annika. "
"The attacking dog is three times larger than the Jack Russell terrier Billy and Annika does all she can to cover him. "
"– I span me up and yell at it, and then the slow he down a bit, but he spins around and bites a hold of Billy and starts to shake him like a rag, " she says."
"the Owners disappeared without a trace."
"the Attack lasted for about five minutes, and Annika la in vain over the dogs to stop the attack. "
"– He's released not one. I couldn't get it off him, the only thing I tried to do was to ensure that he does not rumble, Billy, " she says. "
"To the end, a familiar to the unknown owner who may stop on the attack and after that they disappear without a trace. At this point, Billy, severe damage over the whole neck, the shoulders, and a bit up on the breast, and in need of emergency care. "
" He was conscious but severely worn and badly damaged. I was just thinking, ”may he not die”, says Annika. "
"They went in to the vet and fortunately, so did Billy but he is badly damaged and will need supervision around the clock. "
"”the Dogs should be linked”"
"Anders Karlsson, a commissioner at the polisregion the South, is the one who received the matter that are classied as offences against the act on the supervision of the dog. "
"– The first step is to identify the dog and its owner. We have received tips and are right now on the two people who can be relevant, " he says. "
"the Dog who went to the attack was, according to Annika, a real ”muscle dog” and she believes that dog owners should have taken responsibility. "
"My Billy has no chance against such a dog. There is nowhere that he does not have ulcers now. Dogs should be linked, " she says. "
"She feels that this could have been prevented if the dog has been tied or had the gag on but understand that it can be difficult to assess which ones should be disconnected or go freely. "
"– I'm of the opinion that you can never trust an animal 100% how much pli you have on it you never know what can happen, " she says. "
