TWO dangerous Alsatian dogs are likely to be destroyed if they attack again an Ipswich court heard.
Rescued dogs, Max and Casey, have been given a reprieve by Magistrates as long as their owner Malcome Shiress keeps them under proper control in future.
South East Suffolk Magistrates' Court heard that on June 10 a Mr Phillips had been in Allenby Park, Felixstowe playing ball with his four children and their Border Collie when the Alsatians charged over.
John Hardwick, prosecuting, said: “Max goes for the neck of the Collie while Casey attacked Mr Phillips leg.”
The court heard that 57-year-old Shiress had been “a responsible dog owner” for more than 30 years and Max and Casey had been recently acquired as rescued dogs.
Shiress pleaded guilty to two charges of not keeping a dangerous dog under proper control. He admitted Max had bitten the Collie but denied Mr Phillips had been bitten.
