Joan Ruddick, 69, was walking back home after a festive meal with relatives when her Pomeranian was suddenly savaged by a Staffordshire bull terrier.
It took three people to prise the animal's jaws off Honey, including officers from a passing police patrol on Parr Stocks Road in St Helens.
Well, at least they'll now take action, since they were at the scene. Right?
The family said police told them no criminal action could be taken against the Staffy owner because it wasn't an attack on a person.
This morning, Merseyside Police confirmed they were pursuing a civil action, but because a person wasn't "left in fear" during the incident, it is not classed as a crime.
Utter bollocks, you are fobbing off the owners because you are useless, incompetent lazy bastards who don't even know the law you are supposed to uphold.
And...she wasn't 'left in fear'?
Mrs Ruddick added: "I'll never forget what happened, I couldn't stop shaking."
Every single one of you involved in this decision isn't fit to wear a uniform or take taxpayer's money. You are a disgrace.
