By the time we got him to the vets it was too late and he passed away, it was awful.

He was such a sweet dog, he couldn’t go to sleep without having his blanket over him, he was a softie. I can’t believe this has happened.

– Cristian Dutu, owner

An investigation is ongoing - anyone with information is asked to contact Merseyside Police of the independent charity Crimestoppers.
