The terrier received a bite to the neck but it is now recovering from her injuries. Her owner was also left shaken by the incident.

The person walking the Staffordshire-type dog was also walking with a leashed German Shepherd and is described as being in a white male in his mid-40s, approximately six feet two inches tall and of a slim build. He had short dark coloured hair and was clean shaven.
