    Youths attack ugly dog prize winner


    One of Britain's ugliest dogs is recovering after he was attacked by a gang of youths who pulled out his only clump of hair, his owner said.
    Youths attack ugly dog prize winner Mugly, who was named Britain's Ugliest Dog by a national newspaper in 2005, was set on by a gang of teenagers after he went missing from his home in Peterborough, Cambs.

    The five-year-old Shitzu-Chinese Crested cross was rescued by a passer-by who saved him from the teenagers who were punching and kicking him in a nearby park.

    "They even pulled out his clump of hair," said owner Bev Nicholson, 46. "It was the only hair he had."

    She said: "Mugly leapt out of the lounge window last Thursday. He must have seen someone outside because he is a real 'people dog'.

    "We searched high and low for hours and put posters up around the neighbourhood. I was convinced he had ended up under a car.

    "About five hours after he went missing I got a phone call from a lady saying, 'I think I found your dog in a park, but don't get too excited because I had to pry him away from five 11-15-year-olds who were kicking him, punching him and hitting him with a stick'."

    Mrs Nicholson said she took Mugly to the vets where he was treated for bruises and a couple of sores.

    She added: "Mugly's bruises are really coming out now. He is a little jumpy but in the circumstances he is doing really well.

    "People might say he is ugly but when you spend a minute with him you think he's gorgeous because of his personality."

    Would you like to visit me and help me with the local yobs here, who think it's funny to call my dog's name over & over in a squeaky "come chase me!" voice every time I take him out, with the result he gets so frustrated he tries to bite me to let him go? (I wouldn't let him off, they are usually over the other side of the road and have also threatened to stab him). Police are as much use as a chocolate teapot & told me to take the dog out at 6am.

    I don't know why teenagers get off on animal cruelty, but they are definitely getting worse. :cursing::cursing::cursing::cursing::cursing:

    I know, it made me so mad when I read it, especially looking at the little guys face-he looks so sweet.

    Kids these days get away with so much :mad: (well its not just the kids is it) I mean, what the hell are these kids parents teaching them???

    We only live a short way from Peterborough and I wish it was me that found the little b******s so I could have pulled out out all their hair and given them a good kicking :cursing:

    God, just thinking about it now is p*****g me off :cursing:

    It is disgusting! I really don't understand how anyone can do that to an animal. :mad:

    If I ever found out any of my kids had done that (not that they would) I would soon teach them to never do it again!!

    Good on that person for stepping in and saving Mugly.

    Sadly, youngsters behaving like this give a bad name to all teenagers :(

    what makes me so mad is just what have the parents taught these children ?
    wheres the respect for animals and your elders like I was taught by my parents ... id no more dream of hurting an animal than I would an elderly person , but more and more you read of attacks on both

    its disgusting :mad: :cursing:

    Poor dog , I hope he's ok after his ordeal
