Police in Hertfordshire are appealing for information after a Japanese Akita dog was found abandoned in Flamstead.
It was discovered late yesterday afternoon (Weds 2nd) by a woman driving along Pietley Hill.
She tried to befriend the dog in order to take it to kennels but as they were walking along, the dog became spooked and bit the woman before returning to its bed.
A short while later, a dog walker passed and the Akita bit the other animal.
Police officers attended to help safely detain the dog, which was then taken to a specialist shelter to prevent any risk to members of the public.
Enquiries to trace the owner of the Akita have so far proved unsuccessful. I am appealing for anyone with information about the dog or its owners to come forward.
I am also keen to trace the dog walker whose dog was attacked. If this was you, please get in touch.”
