How to stop dog bites

An Irishwoman says her dogs can now be seen on CCTV after being “chipped” by a stray dog.

Caroline Booth, of Loughlin in Dublin, was walking her dogs Rory and Bella on Friday night when she says she was bitten.

“I was walking up to the fence when I was bitten by a dog,” she told the Irish Times.

“It was a bit rough around the edges, but it didn’t stop me from doing my job.”

There were no other dogs around, but when I looked down, I saw a small dog, and then I thought, ‘This must be Rory’.

“The dog was really small, maybe a quarter of an inch, and it wasn’t running away.”

Caroline said she was in shock as she struggled to get her hand free from the bitten area, which had blood on it.

“It was very scary, because I had been bitten before, and I was worried,” she said.

“But then I realised it was just Rory, it was not an attack.”

Then I realised that it had been chipped, and that it would not be a problem.

Ms Booth said the woman who had bitten her dogs said the dog had been running away.”

There was an old lady, I think it was a dog, sitting in the fence with her dog, I can’t remember where she was, but she looked very frightened.”

Ms Booth said the woman who had bitten her dogs said the dog had been running away.

She said she would not have let the dog loose if it hadn’t been for the CCTV cameras.

“When we first saw the footage, it really did make me feel very proud,” she added.

“To have this footage on your phone and have it be on TV, that’s fantastic.”

You never know, a bit of a shock.

“The incident happened on the same day as a dog walker was attacked in Dublin by a coyote.”

He was left with a bloody face, but he was okay.””

He was attacked by a big dog.

He was left with a bloody face, but he was okay.”

He said that the man had got his leg caught in the mesh, and the dog was running away,” she continued.
