Sunshine Coast Council has said enough is enough and warned it take a zero tolerance approach to irresponsible dog ownership.

The calls come after three dogs attacked and killed and pomeranian cross mini fox terrier this morning at Buderim.

Director Community Services Coralie Nichols said there had been an escalation in dog attacks on the Sunshine Coast over the past month and council would come down hard on irresponsible dog owners.

The council have called the dogs who mauled the small dog in the suburban street “pitbull type dogs” however,

Selena Reid from the RSPCA said the dogs are more likely American staffies crossed with another breed.

“It is time dog owners realise they need to take personal responsibility for their dogs,” Ms Nichols said.

“Council is drawing a line in the sand today and advising that we will not tolerate dogs not under effective control in the community, that we have zero tolerance for aggressive and dangerous dogs, and that we will ensure that owners of these animals will be held responsible for their dogs’ unacceptable behaviour.”
