A SMALL dog needed stitches after being attacked by two bulldog- type dogs which were off their leads.
A woman was walking her white lhasa apso through Conway Drive, and Shoebury Road, Great Wakering, between 5.45pm and 6pm on Sunday, October 6.
As she was walking, she saw a man in a dark coloured Land Rover pull up and let two dogs out, without any type of lead.
A police spokesman said: “Both the man’s dogs were off the lead while the woman’s dog was on a lead.
“One of the man’s dogs, described as looking like American bulldogs, attacked the woman’s dog and only let go after the man intervened.
“The victim’s dog had to have stitches following the incident.
“While the man took the victim’s contact details after the incident he has not yet been in touch.”
Police are appealing for witnesses following the attack.
Anyone with information about the incident or the man is asked to call police at Rayleigh on 101.
