Blackburn neighbours complain about dog on the street

Lancashire Telegraph: Blackburn neighbours complain about dog on the street Blackburn neighbours complain about dog on the street

RESIDENTS have complained about a dog in Beresford Road that they say is allowed out unaccompanied.

Shokat Chopat, who lives on the road, said: “It’s a big problem when the children are playing outside, and since the baby girl died, it’s made us more aware.”

Police confirmed that a complaint had been received but when they visited the dog, believed to be a Japanese Akita, was friendly on approach and not a banned breed.

Owner Soraya Parvaiz, 26, said the dog, called Jack, had only been out alone once. She said: “He is a very good dog, he’s a family dog, he’s 12 years old. He’s not vicious. The police have said he’s not a harmful dog.”

I wonder if this is the same very beautiful looking animal seen regular on Openshaw Drive? the owner exercises the dog by allowing it to run alongside their moving car.
