Help find heroes who saved Jack Russell dog from savage attack
POWERLESS to stop a vicious double dog attack on his precious pet Bonnie, Richard Dunt says mystery heroes saved her life.
Now Mr Dunt wants the boy and woman who raised the alarm at Brockworth Playing Fields to come forward so he can thank them.
They acted when his two-year-old Jack Russell was almost killed by a pair of loose dogs on Sunday.
“If it had not been for them, I don’t know what would have happened,” said a shaken Mr Dunt, 69, who was throwing a ball for Bonnie when she was set upon.

“There was a boy playing football nearby and the dogs ran past him. They came over to us and with no warning just picked her up and started ripping her to pieces. I was kicking and doing whatever I could to stop them but I fell over and could not get up because of my replacement joints. I asked the little boy with the ball to help but understandably he couldn’t, but he raised the alarm with a woman who called the police and an ambulance,” he said. “They were there in seconds.”
The dogs ran off and, fearing Bonnie was dead, he rushed her to a SPA vets in Painswick Road, Gloucester, with his son Robert. He didn’t have a chance to thank the two people who helped him and Bonnie.
She spent two nights at the vets and came home on Tuesday. She is covered in lacerations but is expected to recover.
The pair of dogs, which were also believed to have been behind the killing of Penelope Perry’s Jack Russell Jasper last month, have since been put down.
A police spokesman said officers contained both animals, their owner was identified and gave consent for the animals to be put down.
