A mother has told of the the terrifying moment she was mauled by a Rottweiler whilst out walking her dog near her home.

Shue Leung had been walking her Shih Tzu in North Baddesley, Hampshire, when she was pulled to the ground by the dog.

The Rottweiler, which had been off its lead at the time, attacked her as she clutched onto her own dog to try and keep it from harm. 

Dramatic CCTV footage shows the huge dog spot Ms Leung and her seven-year-old pet Mushroom, watching them for a few seconds before launching its attack on the smaller animal.

Shue can be seen trying to pull Mushroom away from the Rottweiler before she falls over and the dog continues with its savage attack — this time on her face. 

The 52-year-old woman was left in a ‘pool of blood’ and suffered horrific injuries.

The Rottweiler was put down following the attack. The man has been interviewed under caution by police and enquiries are still ongoing.

 The elderly owner of the dog then rushes over and beats it to drive it off.

He then appears to help stricken Ms Leung, gesturing at the dog to keep it away, while it watches on. 

An ambulance was called by a passer by, and Shue was rushed to hospital, requiring around 70 stitches to close the wound to the side of her face.  

Recalling the attack she said: ‘I was walking my dog. Every morning we do it about that time.

‘Just outside our neighbours, I noticed a Rottweiler was off the lead with no muzzle. The owner was walking very far behind him.

‘That is where the Rottweiler saw us. I raised up my dog hoping to grab him.

‘With his full force he pushed me onto the ground. He tried to grab my dogs front arm.

‘I was holding my dog tight. I was curled up so the Rottweiler couldn’t get to my dog.

‘After the dog then attacked me the owner then ran to stop the dog. If the owner had been a bit slower my face could have been worse.’

Ms Leung, who works as front of house for a fast food restaurant, said she was left in ‘awful’ pain and had to wait around four hours at the hospital for surgery.

When she finally did undergo surgery, she spent five hours in the theatre and said when they cleaned her wound, it was ‘horrific’.

The incident took place at around 9.40am on March 1, but weeks on she has not been able to return to work and said she is concerned about people seeing her injuries.

She said when her family saw her injuries, ‘they were shocked’, adding: ‘My son saw it and he couldn’t cope.

‘I will definitely be scarred for life.

‘I don’t want people to see my scars. I don’t want to see the dogs to be honest. I fear to go out.’

She added: ‘I don’t even want to look at myself in the mirror.’

Hampshire Police said they were called at 9.50am on Friday, March 1, to a report that a woman had been bitten on the head by the dog.

A spokesperson said: ‘She sustained serious and potentially life-changing injuries requiring hospital treatment.’

Officers have also confirmed the dog has since been ‘humanely put to sleep’ after its owner, a man in his 70s, ‘voluntarily disclaimed’ the animal to police.

A spokesperson for Hampshire Police said: ‘We received a report at 9.50am on 1 March that a woman in her 50s had been bitten on the head by a dog in Fleming Avenue, North Baddesley. 

‘She sustained serious and potentially life-changing injuries requiring hospital treatment. 

‘The dog’s owner, a man in his 70s, voluntarily disclaimed the animal to police, and the dog has since been humanely put to sleep. The man was been interviewed under caution by police and enquiries are ongoing.’
