A woman in a wheelchair watched in horror as a loose dog savaged her pet, puncturing its eye.

Julia Adams, 62, was in Canbury Gardens on Sunday, June 22, when her chihuahua-pug mix, Peppa, fell victim to a dog which had escaped from its owner.

The owner ran off after the attack without apologising, she said.

Mrs Adams, who lives in The Bittoms, said: "The dog just came hurtling through the shrubs [and] turned her on her back. I'm in a wheelchair and I couldn't get up and do anything. She's a tiny little thing.

"The blood was just gushing out of my dog's eye because the other dog had bitten right through the retina. She's not even five yet.

“The woman just didn't apologise, she just ran off. It's obviously a dangerous dog and I should imagine it's done it before.”

Mrs Adams was left with a £1,069 vet's bill, but has no idea who it was who lost control of the other dog.

Kingston Council dog warden Stewart Toop said there was not enough information for him to take action.

Peppa has bounced back from the assault, Mrs Adams said, and is now running around again following surgery.
