Attack report:

Walking my French bulldog home from the park when a unleashed kelpie appeared from the front of a house. No owner insight, all of a sudden the kelpie was latched onto my dogs hind legs. I was bitten on the thumb and have just had emergency plastic surgery. Top of my thumb had a major fracture. Owner took 30/40 seconds to come outside after I was screaming out for help. She held the dog. And told me “it’s not my dog” and left. Didn’t ask if I was okay or if my dog was okay! Second time this same dog has attacked my dog!
