A SCARBOROUGH couple have made a plea for the owner of a dog that attacked their pet to come forward.
Black and white border collie Meg was bitten by a large light-coloured alsatian at Moor Lane in Newby on March 15.
The alsation’s owner left the scene, without giving his details to Meg’s shocked owners, Alan and Denise Mills.
Mr and Mrs Mills later discovered that the bite left a deep puncture mark and vets’ bills have spiralled to £230.
They hope to speak to the alsatian’s owner and ask if he will help with the fees.
“The alsatian snapped its lead, it was a vicious attack,” Mrs Mills said. “The owner got his dog under control and was very apologetic.
“At the time we didn’t know what the damage would be.”
Mr Mills added: “The man was very upset. I think people should be aware of this type of thing. It could have been a child.”
