no we have not been to the police YET we are still concerned with the dogs well being ( he's still undergoing surgery ) He was sedated overnight to calm him before going under.
1) I don't know at this stage if the other owner could trace ! but I like to work on the basis they could.
2 my daughter in law was so shaken after 2 dogs fighting around her legs, I don't know if she has this information, I'm doing this to take some of the worry + pressure off them so they can concentrate on the dog.
Even in the dark both dogs are very prominent - ours a Char Pei of which very few people own, so it should be quite easy to trace, and theirs a Staff which are quite common.
You have been VERY VERY helpful, and put a family at ease.
