Louie the cocker spaniel was attacked by a much larger dog on April 8.

Small dog nearly killed in vicious attack

Hunt is on for canine that attacked Louie the cocker spaniel.

A small dog is nursing serious injuries after it was attacked by a much larger canine last week.

The one-and-a-half-year-old cocker spaniel was being walked by its owner along 134 Street and 80 Avenue on Friday, April 8 when a newer-model VW Beetle pulled over.

The driver and passenger appeared to be switching positions when their dog broke loose.

It’s believed to be a grey pit bull and it went straight for “Louie” the cocker spaniel.

Louie’s owner, a 70-year-old man, tried to pull the dog away, but was unsuccessful. A neighbour saw the attack and came out to intervene.

Louie was bitten about 15 times on his left side and had a punctured lung and ruptured diaphragm.

The whereabouts of the pit bull or its owner is unknown.
