Seven police officers stormed a 73-year-old woman’s house and seized her ‘dangerous’ ten-year-old Yorkshire terrier Alfie after he chased after a delivery man.
Claudia Settimo-Bovio, from Kingston in south west London, claimed officers in five cars came to take her dog away on Friday.
She said: ‘I was treated like a criminal and I’m not.
‘My dog is not vicious. He’s not a Rottweiler, he’s a little Yorkshire terrier. I live on my own and he’s very protective of me.
‘He just likes to chase. Show me a dog who doesn’t like to chase.’
It was reported the dog was ‘possibly a Border Collie or similar size’ but when police arrived they discovered Alfie was in fact a Yorkshire Terrier.
