Police have charged a man after his two dogs attacked another dog in Paisley.

The incident happened in a walkway area of Barr Place in Paisley at around 7.30am on Thursday.

Renfrewshire News has learned this was not the first incident involving these dogs. They have previously attacked other dogs in the area. We learned that the owner was already being investigated under the Dangerous Dogs Act and his dogs should have been on leads and wearing muzzles.

CCTV seen by Renfrewshire News shows the owner of  Mia, a white American Bulldog, walking along a path.  The first dog can be seen sprinting from one end of the estate to where the pair were walking and attacking the 12-year-old dog.

The second dog began to attack while the owner of the attack dogs could be seen wrestling the pair for a few minutes.

Mia was rushed to a vet where she was found to have suffered large cuts on her belly that required stitching and several puncture wounds on her body and neck.

The attack dogs have been safely secured and their fates will be decided by the court if they are to be released or put to sleep.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Around 7.30am on Thursday, 21 March, 2024, we received a report two dogs had attacked another dog in the Barr Place area of Paisley. The injured dog was taken to a veterinary practice for treatment. It has since been returned to its owner.

“A 38-year-old man has been charged in connection with the incident and is the subject of a report to the Procurator Fiscal.
