Dog-owner stabbed by thug who tried to snatch his £2,500 French bulldog puppy

SAVAGE ATTACK

A DOG-OWNER was stabbed by a thug who tried to snatch his pet.

Aaron Aston was attacked in an alley as he walked French bulldog Vinnie.

The five-month-old pooch — named after ex-footballer Vinnie Jones — is a Kennel Club-registered pure breed worth £2,500.

Self-employed gardener Aaron said a man approached him and asked how old his dog was.

Aaron, 20, said: “I told him and he said ‘Great. That’s nice — now give me your f*****g dog’.

“I carried on walking and he crept up behind me and punched me in the face. I hit him back and thought he’d punched me in the ribs — but he’d stabbed me.

“I picked up my dog and went to my mate’s.

It was only when he saw the hole in my jumper I realised I had been stabbed.”

Aaron, of Leeds, is now being treated for anxiety. But he said: “I was not going to let the dog be taken. It was not happening.”
