Surrey police seized two large dogs yesterday evening (December 10) after receiving reports of them acting aggressively towards members of the public.

The incident took place at around 7pm on the Longacre Estate in Ash.

Since then numerous posts have appeared on social media, written by local people defending the dogs, some suggesting that the owners were at fault for not keeping them secured.

One person said: “I’ve seen these dogs loose around my area quite a few times and they are lovely, friendly dogs, not aggressive at all.”

Another wrote: “They are super friendly dogs, not dangerous at all except for the fact that being loose means they are running on roads but that isn’t their fault.”

Another said: “I’ve seen footage of these dogs behaving extremely friendly towards the public, just happy to be around people.”

And another pleaded: “Please don’t put these dogs to sleep. I know police can take them to a rescue where they can be re-homed with responsible owners.”

Police said they received “multiple reports” of the dogs behaving aggressively and seized them under the Dangerous Dogs Act. They said enquiries to establish the full circumstances were ongoing.
