This is a warning to dog walkers in Brownhills – there was a very worrying incident in Holland Park today (Sunday, 29th July 2018), when a local lady was horrified to witness her beloved pet Jack being attacked by a pair of out of control dogs belonging to another park user.

Upset is not the word my poor jack has been viciously attacked due to an irresponsible owner who thought it was ok to have his Staffy and his Pit Bull off the lead (well didn’t even have a lead for a start) on a children’s park.
Been at emergency vets for him to be sedated and needs medication due to lacerations and puncture wounds.
The poor dog is traumatised. As anyone who knows me I’m a massive dog lover but that was the worst experience of my life seeing that happen and those dogs having jack around the throat.
Thank you to Susan Lakin for helping us.
I am making enquiries as to the exact time of the incident (It appears to be late Sunday afternoon, 29th July 2018) and as to any description of the other dog owner. The dogs in question are thought to be a Staffordshire Bull Terrier and a Pit Bull Terrier.
Obviously, if you walk your dog in Holland Park or other parks or commons in the Brownhills area, bear this awful incident in mind and and take care at all times.
Remember, t is an offence not to be in control of your dog.
I wish Lisa and Jack all the best for a speedy recovery, and I’ll update this post when I get more detail.
