Angry Danny Mitford has been scarred after a dog sank its teeth into his arm.An attack in the street? Well, no. Not quite:
Danny had gone with a friend to buy a cross Bull Mastiff and Staffordshire Bull Terrier puppy when the pooches’ mother lurched at him.
The snarling dog, called Tia, had first bit the 28-year-old’s leg which left a bruise. But moments later the dog kept its eye on Danny and lunged at the IT designer - sinking its teeth into his skin.Well, that should have taught you a valuable lesson in choosing in future to buy only from a reputable breeder, shouldn't it?
As should the reaction of the breeder:
Richard Stidolph, who owned Tia before giving her to his mother Jaqueline, 48, said: “A mother dog is obviously going to get protective over her puppies.
“We did tell the man that she didn’t like men but he still sat down and wanted to come in.”/facepalm
The animals here aren't solely of the four-legged kind...
