  1. http://www.sunderlandecho.com/news/local/all-news/sunderland-dog-owner-s-1-200-bill-to-save-husky-puppy-after-horror-attack-by-bullmastiffs-1-7751918 I have also informed local council "Dogs out of Control" dept.
  2. Hi Tezza, Thank you for your advice. Mine was on lead they were both off lead and have witnesses also, Summer isnt too bad with regard to other dogs as we have another adult husky and a very old man sharpie/staffy cross, the only thing that seems to bother her is when she sees 2 dogs together when walking. she hides behind our legs. Its not so much the money side that bothers me its that this has happened several times to different dog owners the police dont want to know and when the owner has been approached he screams harassment to police, I need to know that this man will legally be told to keep his dogs on lead and muzzled.
  3. we`re going through the messages and contacting the people who`s dogs has been attacked for statements if they are willing. I did reiterate to the officer that my partner was fear of being injured by these dogs too, not even interested shocking
  4. my son already did that, got thousands of shares and replies from that, a couple who`s dogs were attacked by the same ones, same story went to house and he claimed harassment, however no one has gone any further legally
  5. wellll, i sent the letter with copy invoices, pictures of Summers injuries etc as advised, and guess what the police turned up at my door today, the dogs owner had rang them and said i was harassing them by sending this letter, i explained i was following a procedure prior to a small claim going into court, which the officer was fine with then went on his merry way. I have since been contacted by a lady whose jack russell was attacked by the same dogs last year and off lead, she went to their house and they sent police to her accusing her of harrasment, so this must be on police records?? the officer that came to mine stated there was nothing they could do quoted "dog on dog" I argued my case as clearly the owner could not control his dogs, I am furious and I am going to submit a written complaint to the police.
  6. Not sure if this is the right place to put this but im sure I`ll be guided I have an army pension after serving 18yrs and a war pension at 30%, I then worked off shore for a further 18yrs, during this 18 years offshore 2014/2015 I was offshore holland when i returned to the uk to work offshore I was told that I had to catch up with my NI which I did at the end of last year 2015, I left offshore due to disability in december and have claimed ESA however they have told me I cant get contribution based ESA as I hadnt paid enough NI in 2014/2015, my point is I still caught up with it and paid it, this is driving me crazy Regards skye
  7. Thank you I will contact my insurers tomorrow and check my house insurance. Regards Mrs Skyee
  8. Hi Slick and thank you for your response. 1. My insurance has acknowledged receipt of my claim however Ive not spoken to them direct as yet, 2. I do not know whether the owner has insurance, 3. The fees so far stand at £1500 minus £500 from the owner of the dogs =£1000 outstanding, 4. My insurance will cover up to £3000, that figure is without x rays and internal investigations which Summer is having tomorrow under sedation which Ive been advised by the vet will be around £500, and depending on the results she will need more treatment eg physio if not further surgery. Many thanks Mrs Skyee
  9. Hi thank you for your advise here is my draft, I wont be sending it until next week as Summer has to have xrays etc as she is limping quite bad and lost muscle in her leg' RE; Vet Fees On the evening of 22nd February 2016 your 2 Bull Mastiffs who were both off lead in a Public Area attacked our 3 month Husky puppy who we had on lead causing severe injuries to Summers outer and inner left back leg and several puncture wounds around her backside and genital area, after the attack on Summer you immediately left the area with your dogs not leaving your name and address nor any offer of support nor concern for Summers condition, luckily there were several people who had witnessed the attack and informed ourselves of your address, you admitted you were at fault and offered to pay £500 towards Summers vet fees and promised to keep your dogs on lead and muzzled in the future, Summer had to be rushed to emergency vets at Gateshead where she was kept overnight for an emergency operation, Summer had internal and external stitching, antibiotics and pain killer. Summer has had several post op visits to the vet and was given more pain killers/antibiotics and her wound had to be re- stapled. Summer has not regained full activity , she is limping progressively and has lost muscle in her leg she has to have x-rays and further investigations carried out, and remains on pain killing medication. The trauma of the attack has affected Summers confidence, causing a lot of stress and anxiety to her, ourselves and our other pet Husky as we have had to keep them separated during this time, we reported the attack to the police who have passed it onto their Dangerous Dogs Team to investigate. Our current vet fees stand £???? Minus £500 received from yourself (copies enclosed) , however this will likely increase due to the severity of the damage caused and aftercare she will need to support her recovery , our insurance has a cut off limit and our premiums are likely to increase causing financial pressure and further stress to ourselves, therefore we intend to issue a claim against you at The Small Claims Court 28 days from the date of this letter to recover the vet fees incurred for Summers injuries and aftercare if we receive no response from yourselves. It may be advisable to check your pets insurance and home insurance policies as you may have 3rd party liability cover . Regards
  10. Thank you for your advice I have now contacted my council and spoke to police again, as I have been Marac`d and under safeguarding risk atm, the police advised they would contact their" I think she said the dangerous dogs team, there seems to be lack of communication between services!! I also found after researching a few things on line that I should send a letter and invoices re after surgery care etc etc, of my intentions as I most certainly am going to claim the vets insurance fees, trauma etc, and allow them 28 days to react
  11. my partner and his friend had our 4 month husky bitch out on a walk in a public park area just down the road as always she was on lead it was pretty dark and out of nowhere 2 Bull Mastiffs (off lead) attacked her cause sever injuries to her back left outer leg and inner with puncture wounds around her backside she was absolute squealing and terrified, my partner had to physically kick them away as the owner did nothing otherwise Im sure they would have killed her, the owner then ran off with his dogs still off lead,luckily our neighbor works for a local pet charity and rang vets etc which was 10 miles away as it was out of hours, Summer was kept in overnight for op etc, when we returned from vets our neighbor showed us where the owner lived and we went to talk to him, we were in no way aggressive in fact I actually felt sorry for him, he couldn't apologize enough and promised to pay the vet fees and to keep his dogs on lead and muzzled in the future as apparently this had happened before, which we agreed we would bring him the invoice to pay he was an adult and we believed he would keep his word, however the following day after we took the invoice to him and came home he called the police and accused us of being aggressive and threatening which we were certainly not and we refused to sign the statement from the police. I contacted the local newspaper as I was concerned that it would happen again follwing the article I was shocked at how many people contacted us to say it had happened to them but didnt know where he lived to do anything about it. Although luckily we have Summer insured the vet fees are rapidly increasing almost at £2000 our limit is 3000, and Summer still has to have xrays, physio etc as she is limping badly, and our premium will increase next year due to the claim, and he is still taking dogs out off lead. The police basically tols us there wasnt anything they could do its disgusting and will probably attack other dogs or even children. I need some advise as to how I can deal with this eg claim for vets fees and ensure his dogs are under control. Phew
