THE owners of a dog who was viciously attacked by another dog say they are "heartbroken" after their pup died from his wounds.

Sam Mannion and Dad George Stewart have set up a Just Giving page in aid of the PDSA after they did everything they could to try and save Beagle Charlie from injuries.

Last week, we told how four-year-old Charlie was the victim of a late-night attack and required more than 100 stitches and emergency surgery in the hope of saving his life.

George was taking Charlie on his last walk at around midnight on Sunday, September 24 on Holly Street, Clydebank, when another dog pounced on him, "ripping him apart."

Sadly, Charlie had to be put down due to both the external and internal wounds suffered, having not eaten for five days and constant vomiting.

Now, Sam and George hope to raise some much-needed funds for the PDSA to say thank you for all their efforts over a horrific week for the dad and daughter.

Their Just Giving page read: "On Friday evening, surrounded by all of our love, we had to say a gut-wrenching goodbye to our beautiful boy. He fought so hard to stay with us, but he had been through too much.

"Had it not been for the PDSA, we wouldn't have had this extra week watching our strong boy give it his all.

"We wouldn't have had the comfort in knowing we had done everything in our power to help him, and we wouldn't have had a calm, loving final hour with him.

"Charlie was so well loved by anyone who ever met him. He's well-known in the community and touched so many hearts. We are all absolutely devastated to have lost him in such a tragic manner at only four years young.

"I'd like to ask anyone who loved our boy, to donate anything they can, even a pound, to the PDSA in Charlie's memory.

"If they can save one more pet in his name, then Charlie's memory will always live on.

"Thank you all for your love and support at this awful time."
