Dog attack leaves woman in hospital

Police are looking for the owner of a "rottweiler-type" dog which attacked a woman and her mother in Kaiapoi, 20km north of Christchurch.

A woman, in her late 20s, was taken to Christchurch Hospital by ambulance with "extensive injuries" after the attack, which took place about 10.40am on Old North Rd, Sergeant Colin Stewart said.

The attack happened as the woman, who was visiting her mother, intervened to protect her own dog, which was being attacked by a large black dog, Mr Stewart said.

The dog, being walked by a man described as being European and in his 40s, then attacked her, leaving her with extensive lacerations to her arms, he said.

The dog also attacked the woman's mother, who came out to help after hearing her daughter screaming.

She was treated by a local doctor for injuries to her hands.

Police wanted to speak to the dog's owner who "walked away" from the scene leaving the woman bleeding on the sidewalk.

He walked away because he didn't want his dog destroyed, and a 6 month sentence!
