‘This dog needs putting down’: Terrified pet owner tells how he was mauled by crazed ‘XL Bully’ that ‘broke out of a house’ and attacked his puppy in the street

This is the horrific moment a tiny dog is savaged by a Bully-style mutt – who wags his tail as the desperate owner attempts to drag his pet from the beast’s jaws.

In terrifying footage the man is dragged across the residential street as the hound runs free, brutally attacking his black and white puppy.

The shocking scene continued despite neighbours jumping to the rescue – with one even throwing a metal firepit at the beast in an attempt to drive it off.

The owner, father-of-one Josh Hymas from from Mansfield, near Nottingham, claimed the animal broke out of its owners’ house before his puppy, Ralph, was attacked.

In the appalling moment where the hound pulled at him on the floor the 33-year-old says he thought his dog was dead – and lay on him in a desperate attempt to stop him being torn to pieces. 

The beloved family pet, who is only one year and two months old, is the best friend of his one-year-old son, Hugo.
