Bobby Norris had a panic attack after his pet pooch was viciously mauled by a big dog earlier this week.
The 'Only Way is Essex' star has admitted he was struggling to control his breathing and collapsed to the ground after he watched his "baby" Beau brutally attacked by another canine.
He explained: "I had a panic attack so I'm kind of doubled up and I can't breathe and by the time I've come up from the ground and I'm looking at Beau on the floor, I'm in the field on my own. [The other dog's owner had quickly left]. Beau's my baby so in my head, I had to get him to a vet immediately. I got him to a vet and it wasn't looking good but unfortunately the extent of the damage and we had to make the decision and the kindest thing for beau was to put him to sleep."
The 29-year-old star is now on a mission to get dangerous dogs tagged so other owners don't lose their precious animals to vicious attacks during their routine walks.
Speaking on 'Loose Women' on Friday (22.07.16), Bobby said: "One of my very good friends is in to horses and goes to horse shows and she said if horses have the nature of kicking, they put a little red ribbon around its back leg so I don't know why in the dog world why we can't carry something over; be it a collar, lead, a traffic light system maybe."
