Dog owner left with horrific leg injuries after being attacked by puppy days after being brought home

A dog owner suffered horrific injuries to both her legs after she was attacked by her new puppy just days after bringing him home.

William Fraser and his fiancée Marianne were delighted to welcome puppy Thor to their home in time for him to settle in for Christmas.

But the German Shepherd Belgian Malinois crossbreed puppy had behavioral issues and soon began to behave aggressively.

They brought Thor home from the breeders on Oct. 17 and it was just a matter of days before the trouble started, the pair told MailOnline.

Shocking footage shows purple and black bruises to one leg and two stab wounds to the flesh of Marianne’s legs after the dog lunged at her.

William said it was “with a heavy heart” that they had to make the decision to give him up.

William told MailOnline: ‘We saw a dramatic change in the second week he was with us.

“He started challenging Marianne, holding it and not letting go, then the biting started.”

The couple had adopted Thor from Fawnnest Kennels in Lockerbie and shared the images of Marianne’s injuries to warn others.

William said they tried to stay optimistic and even invested in getting a trainer and behaviorist, but there was no improvement.

“After a few days he got worse and as a result Marianne was attacked endlessly and her face hurt.”

In what he described as “the most difficult decision,” William said the couple decided to hand Thor over to a shelter that specialized in retraining dogs for military or police services.

He told MailOnline: ‘We are devastated. It still hurts. We had to take time off from work because we are so upset, especially towards Christmas time where we thought we would have our pup.

Thor was picked up by Julie Nevett this week and she said she got another puppy – whom she named Thor 1 – from the same litter after the owners were unable to cope with behavioral issues.

In a Facebook post, Julie said Thor 1 was brought to her for inflicting injuries on a child in need of medical treatment.

She claims that both puppies were handed over to owners by Fawnnest Kennels and that the owners expected to get “pet quality puppies.”

Julie shared images of the horrific injuries on Facebook yesterday, writing: ‘I have never publicly mentioned the breeder of any dog ​​who came to our rescue.

“Today I’m going to break that rule. I feel terrible for both owners, not only have they lost a significant amount and their puppy, they also have some pretty serious injuries.

Don’t buy a ‘pet’ Malinois X German Shepherd from Fawnnest Kennels. I hope the breeders are right to be ashamed.’

The post has received more than 300 comments from social media users who have been divided over their opinions, whether it was the breeder’s fault or the fault of inexperienced owners.

Lynne Dickson said, ‘This ‘breeder’ sold a German Shepherd puppy to friends. It is now five months old and will be lucky to see one year old.

“His spine and hips are full of problems, pup bit them a few times too.”

William told MailOnline that he has contacted the SPCA and the council to express his concerns about Fawnnest Kennels.

He says that when he complained to the breeders, they offered him a refund in exchange for the puppy’s return.

But Mr. Fraser told MailOnline, “It’s not about the money — it’s about the puppy and what they’ve done.”

In his warning shared online, he added: “This is not Thor the pup’s fault as they have clearly been kept as wild animals. I just want people to know there are two of the same pack.”

German Shepherds and Belgian Malinois are typically trained for the police and military, although it is not uncommon for them to be family owned.

Obviously, Thor was retrained for police and military service.

Fawnnest Kennels has been contacted by MailOnline.
