Family pet left fighting for life after savage attack – Dromore Leader

Poppy, a miniature Jack Russell was attacked by a Staffordshire type dog in the village on the afternoon of Sunday November 23.

Speaking last Monday, his owner Sharon Gracey said the next 72 hours would be crucial.

The dog required surgery at Lurgan Vet Clinic after the attack, which left part of her bowel hanging out.

Poppy had been for a walk with Sharon’s son Thomas when she slipped her lead and ran off, only to encounter the other dog a short distance away.

Sharon said: “This other dog just came down and locked onto Poppy.”

Thomas, who is autistic, bravely went to the aid of his stricken pet.

Sharon said: “Poppy is really tiny and Thomas had to prize the other dog’s mouth open, our other two dogs jumped in and the big dog let go.”

Thomas was able to gather up his three pets and get them home and the family rushed Poppy to Lurgan Vet Clinic for treatment.
