Unlove Yorkie attacked and killed by German Shepard

This broke my heart this morning when I read the newspaper.. I said a prayer for this woman here is the link and story.

Woman hunts for killer dog after Dynes Rd. attack | Ottawa & Region | News | Ottawa Sun

Ruth Kernaghan just can’t shake it — the site of her battered, dead dog Monty.

Kernaghan was out walking the small Yorkshire terrier Wednesday night when Monty was viciously attacked and killed by a German shepherd.

The duo was on the last stretch of their jaunt along Dynes Rd. when the attack occurred.

“He grabbed him, shook him by the neck and immediately broke his neck,” said Kernaghan.

“I started screaming ... I sort of jumped on him and started pounding on the German shepherd. A car started honking to stop (the dog) but nothing would phase him.”

None brave enough

At this point, several neighbours had made their way to the street after hearing loud screams, but none were brave enough to interfere or to chase after the dog, Kernaghan said.

Patrick McIntyre was driving home from work and had to stop dead in his tracks after the German Shepherd dragged the Yorkie onto the street.

“I could see the skin of the little dog — it was alive initially, but you could tell it was dead and the bigger dog was throwing it around like a rag doll. It was disgusting,” said McIntyre.

Eventually, the attacking German shepherd was able to break free from Kernaghan’s hold and broke Monty’s collar— he then ran off with Monty in his mouth.

“Nobody wanted to come near that dog,” said Kernaghan. “The neighbours that came out are terrified for their kids — it’s as if he thought he was fighting with me over a toy.”

McIntyre lives in the area and has two small children — he admits the attack worries him and will be extra cautious when walking his children.

“It almost seemed like the larger dog was trained to kill,” said McIntyre. “The stench from the little dog’s (body) was disgusting.”

Kernaghan has been out searching for Monty since the attack — she wants to find his body and give him a proper burial.

“Two-and-a-half weeks ago I had to put down my Westie because of old age. My last memory of her is putting the quilt over her head. I can’t get that last memory of Monty out of my head and that’s his half skinned back and limp body,” said Kernaghan.

She also wants to find the German shepherd so that it won’t attack another animal or child.

“That dog needs to be found, this is not normal behaviour,” Kernaghan said.

That is horrible. I feel so sorry for that woman. I hope she finds her pup and finds that GS and the owners. I send good thoughts and blessings out to her

That poor baby... I hope the woman can find that dog. It's owners should be held responsible. I cannot imagine what she's going through

This is why I carry a folding hunting knife with me on walks......... kinda red neck, I know but anything hurts my babies is going to bleed. Hard to believe no one could grab a shovel or golf club from their house to help this woman. All these stories make me want to buy a few acres in the country, build a brick wall around it, top with razor wire and never let my dogs off the property. If only I could.

Good grief, what a horrible story. On top of losing her Yorkie in that horrible way right in front of her, her Westie is also very recently gone on. Poor woman is probably made with grief. I hope they find the remains and the GSD soon. Can't believe no one would try to help that little Yorkie but her!

That is so sad and horrible I hope they find Monty's remains so that he can be put to rest properly I also pray that the GSD is found and its owners held accountable. Next it'll be a small child that that dog goes after

Cry

The same thing that happened to my neighbors dog but the big dog didn't take off with the little one.

I went to the link in this post and was horrified too see that there were about SIX others stories about dog attacks, to both humans and other smaller dogs. WHY can't people use their heads for something other than a hat rack!?!?

We do not walk our dogs outside. Only 2 of 6 even go out to potty, the 2 oldest ones. And then, our heads swivel around like crazy watching for strays or dogs off leash. I am even afraid to go to the park because some people think they "have control" over their big dogs and "walk with them" w/o a leash.

Every time I read something like this I want to scream AND cry. Helpless people and dogs being killed or injured by dogs. It is really NOT the dogs fault but the OWNERS.

That's terrible. :,(

I was reading through the comments of the article and everyone's arguing whether or not the dog should be put down if they find him. Can dogs that are clearly aggressive be rehabilitated?

Not red necked, it's real lol, I am a native NYer and we understand three things lol. I never understand now this happens though!!! Are they not watching their pets? wherever I am with Miles i never take for granted that he is safe and is OK without a leash, unattended or whatever. I would have thrown anything I could find at that dog including my own body. Do they think its like the movie "Jaws" where they feel the dog is at the point of no return and they fear for their OWN lives if they intervene???

A dog once ran after Miles once but I was there to protect him and he was leashed so I was able to pull him away in an instant. And if something did happen to him that day it would have been MY fault as I was not protecting him enough.
