I WOULD like to bring to your attention the proliferation of pitbull-cross-bulldog terrier type dogs roaming around the Ashington area.
It has got to a point where it is hardly safe to take any other family breed for a walk without seeing one of these ‘supposedly’ illegal creatures.
The vast majority are off the lead and usually accompanied by various types of youth (male or female).
Upon mentioning this to the authorities does not bring any response.
When a local person is seriously attacked by one of these creatures, the questions will only then be asked.
In the meantime responsible dog owners beware.
