Police in southern Sweden who were called out to apprehend a loose dog that was reportedly terrorising a neighbourhood in the Käglinge district of Malmö, were surprised to find that the aggressive canine was a Chihuahua.
“I did think it was going to be a bigger dog than that,” said Calle Persson of Skåne police. Police were alerted to the area to apprehend the cantankerous canine, after the little mutt had gained access to a building and in a fit of temper bit another dog.
Witnesses also said it had been seen scampering around in the neighbourhood barking and acting aggressively against passers-by but without actually biting any of the people it encountered.
Officers searching for the pet returned to the station empty handed however, as the little dog had scarpered by the time they got to the scene.
“The canine that was bitten is recovering well from the ordeal. We still haven’t found the dog either, I guess that could be because of its size,“ Persson said.
