Burglars blinded beloved pet dog by kicking it in the head when they broke into home of elderly woman, 86, while she was at church


Brutal: The dog was left blinded in one eye after burglars viciously beat it when they were ransacking an old woman's home

A beloved dog was left blinded after burglars kicked it in the head as it tried to defend its elderly owner's home while she was at a church service.
Vicious thugs attacked the border collie Kiri, 8, as they ransacked an 86-year-old woman's home in the leafy village of Stoke Prior, West Midlands.
Neighbours in the village were so disgusted by the brutal attack that they have united to offer a £500 reward to find the burglars.

Mark Jones, a close friend and neighbour of the owner of the dog, right, is trying to find those responsible

The dog's owner, who has been widowed for several years, is too frightened to be identified for fear of the thugs returning to her home.
She said at the time: 'This has come as a real shock and I am gutted by what has happened to Kiri.
'She is my daily companion and all I am concerned about at the moment. I can’t believe anyone could be so heartless and cruel to an animal. It has made me very nervous about going out and leaving her alone.

Eight-year-old Kiri now follows its owner around the house as it is scared after the attack

'Kiri appears to be fearful and is following me everywhere about the house as if she needs constant reassurance.
'It’s terrible and I just hope someone can come forward with information to help the police catch the burglar.'
Her close friend and neighbour, Mark Jones, has been leading the community in a bid to find those responsible.
