Mr Kennedy was approached by the men on Gordon Square shortly before midnight on Saturday.
He said they got out of a silver BMW 1 Series and they asked him where someone lived who they were looking for.
His six-year-old dog Buster was on a lead and moved towards one of the men, who told Mr Kennedy to control it.
Mr Kennedy said: “The dog advanced and I pulled him back and then one guy repeated the warning.
“Before I could pull it back he pulled out a knife. He stabbed it in the abdomen. It went through its intestine and its colon.”The breed of dog? Well, not a chuhuahua, or a labrador retriever, of course...
Mr Kennedy said he was too shocked to realise the extent of the injuries until he got home.The commenters aren't buying it.
Police are now investigating.
A spokeswoman for the force said: “Police were called at 12.10am on Sunday April 21 to reports of a dog being stabbed in Gordon Square.
“Officers attended and the dog was taken to the vet for treatment. Inquiries are ongoing.”Maybe they should start with the person these men were allegedly looking for?
