A woman whose dog was attacked while on a walk in Sprowston has appealed for the owner of the other dogs involved to come forward.
Nicki Beevis was walking her seven-month-old Spaniel, Bruce, in the Church Lane park, when he was attacked by a Husky and a Pitbull.
'I walk him a couple of times a day, and you get to know all the other dogs,' said Mrs Beevis, who lives in Sprowston.
But when she was walking Bruce last Monday she spotted a man with a Husky and a Pitbull.
Mrs Beevis said he looked like he was struggling and the next thing she knew the Husky - who wasn't on a lead - had come over to her and Bruce.

'And then he just went for him,' she said. 'At this point I'm screaming my head off. [The owner] let the other one off the lead and they were trying to grab Bruce as I had him in my arms. I don't think it went on for very long.'
Mrs Beevis, a HR manager, said all she could think to do was turn away into the hedge so the other dogs couldn't get to Bruce.

'[The owner] had managed to wrestle both of the dogs to the ground,' she said. 'And he did tell me his name and give me his details, but I was in such a panic it went in one ear and out of the other, Bruce was in such a state.'
Bruce had to stay at the vets overnight, where he was treated for puncture wounds.
'He's a lot better now, he can't jump up on the bed yet though. It would have been absolutely devastating for him to lose his confidence.'
Mrs Beevis put a plea out on Facebook for the owner to get in touch, but hadn't yet heard back.
