Story

My name is Kiki, I am a little 4-year-old Italian greyhound boy full of life and joy.

On the 24th of May 2018, like every day, my owner and I went to the park in Nottingham, and what was a beautiful evening walk on my leash with my owner after a long day of work for her, became in 30 seconds the worst day of my life so far. I was brutally attacked but an enormous American bulldog type dog which was walking in the park with his owner without a leash. He just ran from yards away and litterally jumped on me without giving me any chance to defend myself. I will never know what I did this day to deserve such a rage! I was just smelling a tree. Thankfully, my owner was not injured during the attack. I honestly think she had an amazing luck. Sadly, I did not have the same luck. The attack lasted only few seconds, but I immediately felt something was seriously wrong with my body. I was covered with blood and open injuries on my side. After long minutes of panic to check what to do (it was 9 pm and hard to find where to go as all the vets were closed), the owner of the other dog just decided to give wrong details (name and phone) to escape from his responsibilities and he left the scene letting us in a middle of a pond of blood and flesh. I think he knew exactly what damages his dog did, and that it is illegal walking a banned/dangerous dog without a leash. So, he preferred letting us at our own faith without providing any help. Yes, this kind of person exists! He just left with his beast who still had blood on the mouth and nobody around of course was able to deal with the situation as it was dangerous and I do not blame them (what if, if he unleashed a second time the dog on us?). Of course, we could have done things another way but on the spot the first priority of my owner was to try to save my life. I was in shock but still breathing and conscious. We rushed to a night animal hospital and I then fought for life during the whole end of May bank holiday week-end.

My Owner but also the vets, were very worried for me, but they never gave up on me and, myself, as a persistent doggy, I never gave up on life too! I wanted to go back on holiday in France and play the ball as I am a professional goal keeper. It was not my moment still. I wanted to have another chance. I finally ended with an amputation of a front limb and a severe wound on myside as I lost a lot of skin and flesh during the attack. Unfortunately, this horrific story happened not at the best moment... There were no many vets available. The wait was long and all the interventions were costing double because of the week end bank holiday situation. I would really like to thank you the young lady vet who saved me this week end mainwhile everybody was enjoying the good weather and rest away from work. I will never forget her, and nor the time and dedication she gave to save my little pet life. She was commenting she also had previously a tree leg dog and she was very optimistic for my new life and she really helped everybody to go through this idea without falling. My owner is a hard worker, but the vet bill ended at 3800 pounds because of the bank holiday situation and the critical state of my wound. My owner did not have a pet insurance for me…(Yes sadly) put she already put a good amount and will still work harder to recover from this unexpected financial situation. The web site ask us to put an amount so we put 1000 but It is because we were asked to. The truth is that any pound (or even any penny) will be helpful to help us recovering from all this little by little.

Myside, as the persistent and suborn doggy I am since birth! I am recovering slowly but surely, and I hope giving you excellent news soon about my new life as a tripod italian greyhound. Thank you for reading my story. Much love. Kiki

My name is Juliette, I am living in Nottingham, where I enjoy living and working as a French translator. The 24th of May 2018 was without a doubt the worst experience I had so far in the UK. I would like to raise awareness on dog attacks. Today a dog, tomorrow a child.
