Evie Mayes, 23, was walking in the Queen's Hills area of Costessey with her cockapoo puppies Milo and Loki when the attack happened.

She said: "We were walking our usual route along Poethlyn Drive when we came across two bulldog-type dogs ahead with no leads or owner in sight.

"They both ran over to us and sniffed my two dogs. One made no attempt to attack but the other one bit my youngest puppy, Milo."

According to Evie, the dog had its jaws locked around Milo's neck and was shaking him "like a toy".

She said: "Milo was screaming as if he was being killed and I was petrified as I just couldn't do anything.

"I was pulling Milo up with the lead to try to grab him and this was when I got bit.

"Finally, someone was able to get him off us by throwing a chair at the dog and a family in a house nearby pulled us into their home. I was hyperventilating in fear."

Evie, who works as an administrator at a tech firm, went to A&E where she was prescribed antibiotics, only later discovering puncture wounds in Milo's neck. His treatment cost hundreds of pounds in medication and vet fees.

She added: "I am left with no apology or compensation for what happened. Some witnesses said they were XL bully dogs but I cannot confirm this and now I am afraid to walk my dogs every day.

"But I would like to thank all my family, friends and everyone on the estate who provided so much care and support to me and my boys that day."

It is against the law for a dog owner to let their pet be dangerously out of control in public and in private

A dog is considered dangerously out of control if it injures a person or it attacks someone's pet.

Allowing a dog off the lead and endangering others can lead to an unlimited fine and up to six months in prison, with the dangerous dog at risk of being destroyed.
