Rugby resident Annette Day has spoken out after her young puppy was savaged by two staffordshire bull type terriers on Sunday.

Murphy, who was just eleven months old, was taken to Bilton Veterinary Centre after the attack but sadly passed away on Monday.

Annette decided to take to social media asking Facebook users to share her tragic experience - and spread an important message to dog owners in Rugby and beyond.

She said yesterday (Wednesday): “I really want all (and I mean all) dog owners to ask themselves if they think their dog is aggressive.

“And if so - could they please take advice from dog trainers as to how to discipline, train and keep others safe? It could be a child next time.”

She added: “We buried our little buddy earlier tonight. My two children and I are so upset. RIP Murphy.”
