A couple have been left in shock after their puppy was killed by a greyhound while they were out walking on the beach at Winterton.
Rudy, a four month old Yorkshire terrier, was killed on Tuesday at about 3.10pm as he was being walked by Teresa Walker and her husband.
The puppy, who was not on a lead, had approached a greyhound that was not wearing a muzzle and was grabbed around the throat by the older dog and shaken.
Rudy was taken to Caister Vets and was pronounced dead there.
Mrs Walker, 48 and from Thorpe Hamlet, Norwich, is now urging people to make sure their dogs are muzzled if they need to wear one.

Mrs Walker is due to speak to the police on Friday about the attack, which the couple say has left them in 'total shock'.
