The police in the Plymouth area are now appealing for witnesses after a serious attack by two men and their dog has left a man with injuries from the attack.The man was walking in Stonehouse Creek in Plymouth when he was attacked by a Staffordshire bull terrier.

Whilst trying to defend him and get free from the dog two men assaulted him bringing him to the ground. This then allowed the dog to attack his head whilst the two men pinned him to the ground.
The man was left with serious injuries that including his ear being ripped and requiring stitches. The police are looking for the men described as in their thirties with a foreign accent and their dog which is a black Staffordshire bull terrier with a white chest.

This attack like many across the country highlighst the increasing number of people using dogs trained to be aggressive and threatening. This obviously gives dogs a bad press and also taints the publics image of certain breeds. Whats everyones views on this, we would love to hear from anyone else who knows of similar situations of unreasonable dog training.
