“The warrant was executed in relation to a dangerous dog who has been involved in two attacks recently and has caused community concern,” a spokesman said.

The force said the dog seized was a ‘French bulldog cross’. The diminutive bulldog breed, noted for its pointed ears, snub nose and velvety fur, has become increasingly fashionable in recent years.

A 42-year-old man from Littlemore was arrested on suspicion of being the owner or person in control of a dog dangerously out of control causing injury. He was released under investigation.
