She is then knocked to the ground by the beast, which also savages the woman’s pet labradoodle.

Distressing footage shows her being dragged along the ground as she desperately clings to her dog’s lead.

The devil dog’s owner eventually manages to yank the animal off the labradoodle after it sank its teeth into its flesh.

The woman was rushed to hospital where she was treated for a leg and head injury following the horror in Handsworth, West Midlands.

Police have now launched a probe and are hunting the suspect.

They confirmed he fled the scene on a bike after the attack on August 4 at around 7.45pm.

Inspector Leanne Chapman, from West Midlands Police’s Dangerous Dog Unit, said: “The video makes shocking viewing, and you can see the sheer force that the victim is hit with.

“We believe the dog involved may be a bull breed, and it’s really important that we hear from anyone who knows the man in the images so that we can take steps to protect the public from harm in the future.

“Thankfully, the victim is now recovering, although she is walking with the aid of a frame.

“Her dog suffered puncture wounds to her neck, and is now wary of other dogs, but is recovering well.”
