Police are asking for information about the owner of two dogs that savagely killed a puppy in its garden.
The two dogs, both black and tan Alsatians, managed to get in to the poodle pup’s garden on Jenkins Avenue in Bricket Wood through a small space at the end.
The owner was sitting in the garden when the two dogs broke through and attacked the puppy.
In a bid to save the dog, the owner intervened, and subsequently suffered a wound to her leg that required stitches.
A man believed to be the owner of the Alsatians could be heard in the wooded area at the bottom of the garden yelling for the dogs.

Once the dogs went back into the woodland the man said he would secure them and then return to speak to the victim but he did not come back.
Pc Andrew Shepherd is investigating the incident and said: “The victim has been left absolutely devastated by what has happened. Although she has been lucky not to suffer more serious injuries, her beloved pet was killed.
