Staffy was a rescue dog adopted 4 weeks prior. He rushed out at 8 week old puppy with no signs of aggression. All of a sudden, grabbed around puppy's neck and began shaking puppy.
4 adults tried freeing puppy with no avail, staffy had his jaws locked around puppy's neck.
Puppy died during the incident (white gums, agonal gasping)
No vets contacted as puppy was dead. Council had been contacted, took three days for them to get back in touch and are doing minimal about it. Staffy was taken back to shelter after incident - even though we requested that the owner have it euthanised. now we cant do anything about it.
