Witnesses to an alleged dog attack on the canal path in Blisworth are being urged to contact South Northamptonshire Council.

A black and brown coloured Staffordshire bull terrier type dog is accused of attacking a small brown terrier on the canal side between Towcester Road Bridge and Candle Bridge at about 7.15am on Tuesday, August 9.

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.

Anyone with any information about the owner of the Staffordshire-type dog should email South Northamptonshire Council’s environment enforcement officer via robin.skinner@cherwellandsouthnorthants.gov.uk, or call on 01327 322347.
