Tiny puppy ‘crushed’ to death by another dog while running round in park

A dog owner has spoken of her devastation after seeing her cavapoo puppy being crushed to death by a much bigger dog.

Sophia Siddiqui, 22, took her dog Buffy for a walk in Cale Green park, Stockport, on Saturday afternoon when she saw her being killed.

The six-month-old pup had been running around, playing happily, moments before a Dalmatian-type dog clamped its jaws around Buffy.

Sophia said: ‘We were walking back towards the car when it happened. It grabbed hold of Buffy; no warning, no nothing.

‘It had Buffy in its mouth, I couldn’t get it to let her go. I was just screaming, “get your dog off my puppy”.

‘Buffy was screaming and wailing. Eventually I managed to get her, she was shaking. I ran a bit further away before the woman managed to get the dog on a lead, but she was having to use her strength to hold it back, it was still trying to get at us.’

Another dog walker rushed to Sophia’s aid and drove her and Buffy to an emergency vet.

She said: ‘She had horrific spinal injuries, it was in bits. There was nothing they could do, and they told me it would be kinder to let her go.

‘Buffy weighed just 2.5kg, it took seconds to crush her. I don’t want this happening to anyone else.’

Sophia has tried to contact the owner of the other dog but has been unable to do so.

Sophia also posted her appeal on Facebook. She wrote: ‘Trying to understand and come to terms with the loss of our beautiful, amazing six-month-old puppy Buffy.

‘What started out as the best day ever – eggs for her breakfast, playtime, a trip to the park – was brought to a brutal end.

‘I fought as hard as I could to save her, but her injuries were too severe. My family and I are all absolutely shell-shocked and completely broken and devastated. She was so young and had so much left to do.

‘She never got the chance to grow up, to have a first, second, third birthday, to eat the doggy Easter egg we bought her only yesterday, to go swimming in a paddling pool in summer, to go to a beach and run along the sandy shore.

‘She was such a beautiful, sweet soul, a friend to everyone who ever met her. She was a gorgeous, funny, mischievous, silly, but most of all, happy, little noodle head!

‘To anyone who has a dog, please be careful and treasure every moment with your little furbaby, as we’ve been robbed of so many moments.

‘If anyone has any information, please could you contact me. We love you Buffy, sleep tight and run over the Rainbow Bridge.’

A spokesman for GMP said: ‘Police called to a report of a dog attacking another dog on Heath Road, Stockport, on Saturday. Enquiries are ongoing.’
