A man has been charged by police in connection with an incident where a dog died after being attacked by three dogs on an Edinburgh beach. The attacked Chihuahuas suffered trauma like no other, but at last, justice has come.
Helen Heaney, 49, was walking her two teacup Chihuahuas, Sky and Fudge, on Portobello Beach. The incident happened on 16 October, and it left three attacked Chihuahuas as victims. One of the poor pups died, while the other two were shocked, to say the least.
What was even more shocking was that the vet said Sky died from a massive heart attack. This was all due to the trauma experienced in the incident.
A 50-year-old man has been reported to the procurator fiscal. After the dog caused the upheaval in the attacked Chihuauhas, it was rehomed to another location. This was because the authorities expected the pup to have been maltreated himself.
As for the man in charge of the dog, he is due to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court. Animal rights activists are expecting the correct punishment for the man, seeing how something like this is terrible for the entire community.

I am sad and furious all at the same time. Owners of large breed dogs who don’t leash them, train them, control them are a dangerous menace to other people as well as to small dogs. That this little beloved Chihuahua had to die so horrifically because of that man’s ghastly dog is a reason to put the owner of that killer dog behind bars. In America, people carry firearms, pepper spray, knives for protection. I am sorry that the owner of the now deceased Chihuahua didn’t have a loaded gun to shoot and kill that guy’s beast.
I am furious because it happens here too and the large dogs always win. To the heartbreak and PTSD of the owner of a small dog.
If one more person tries to tell me how good their pitbulls are, I will go OFF on them! They might be fine with their own families, but anyone else including dogs they don’t know, are OTHER, and are likely to be severely hurt.
