An ‘out of control’ Chihuahua named Chelsea is on ‘death row’ after it savaged a woman during a dangerous rampage.

The tiny dog allegedly leaped up to bite Andrea McGann in a home in Glebe Way, Twickenham, southwest London.

Owner Aaron Fox, 27, was unable to stop the eight-inch pet from tearing through the house and assaulting Ms. McGann on March 29 last year, a court heard.

Chelsea has been taken into custody and faces a potential destruction order after Fox was charged with being a person in charge of a dog ‘dangerously out of control and causing injury’.

Fox denied the charge and lodged an application to stop the trial, claiming the Dangerous Dog Act does not cover incidents on private property.

The Act was amended in 2014 to make it an offense for a dog to be dangerously out of control in any place, including private property.

Prosecutors said they intend to continue with the case at Wimbledon magistrates’ court.

Prosecutor Kirsten Marienah said: ‘The crown is still proceeding.’
