Another Akita attack

Is it the same dog?

Yesterday's evening paper carried another story of an attack by a Japanese Akita on another dog being taken out for an innocent walk by it's owner. This site is still receiving lot's of visits from Akita owners, many of them, more than likely, respectable and responsible - so here's another little snippet for them to get their teeth into!

Mr. and Mrs. Shaw's eight year old border collie was being walked on Cleadon Hills, South Shields in March of this year when it was savagely attacked by the Akita, Mrs. Shaw's dog nearly died in the attack and needed almost 1000 pounds worth of veterinary treatment. In a mirror of the other recent attack it is claimed that the Akita's owner nonchalently looked on as the attack took place.

Mrs. Shaw said;

"It's probably the same owner, but I can't be sure. Whoever it is, they need to be found and held accountable for their and the dog's actions"

Mr. Allen, the owner of the Jack Russell puppy caught in the earlier attack, has stayed in touch with the Corner Shop, and continues to call for this breed to be added to the list of Dangerous Dogs.

Meanwhile, I am sending mail to Stephen Hepburn, the MP for our neighbouring constituency, Jarrow, in the hope that he can press for a suitable amendment to the current Act.

Do you know who the owner of Akita is? Can you inform the Corner Shop, there can't be too many Akitas in South Shields. If you know, why not give me a call, or email in confidence, the details are in the side bar.
