Woman attacked by Rottweiler (Updated)

A woman is being treated for bites and shock at a private clinic after being attacked by a Rottweiler on Sunday afternoon in Limassol.

The woman and her husband were walking with their two dogs, one of them a cross between a German shepherd and a husky and the other one a cross between a Labrador and a German pointer, in the tourist area of Limassol when the incident happened.

While they were walking they came across a man with a Rottweiler.

The woman told the Cyprus Mail that the Rottweiler slipped off his collar and grabbed one of her dogs by the neck and started shaking him right and left.

She said when she tried to rescue her dog the Rottweiler attacked her.

The owner of the Rottweiler went to the police following the incident, the woman said, and reported he too had been bitten on his finger but that he didn’t know which of the dogs did it.

He reportedly received first aid at Limassol general hospital.

“I did not press charges but I asked him to do something about his dog, to have him trained,” the woman said.

She said that she is to be discharged by the clinic on Tuesday.

The case is now being investigated by the police and the veterinary services, she said.
