15 days with ITT (total incapacity) for Sandrine and one week hospitalization for Abby, little bichon 12 years old. This Sunday 14 May 2023, To Ronchin (North)the Joly family went for a walk on the occasion of a neighborhood jumble sale when a “staff-type” dog without a master at the end of the leash attacked Sandrine and Abby. Furious that they ran away, Marc calling for witnesses to find the owners of the dog, asking “that they accept their responsibilities”.

“My dog ​​flew like a rag doll”

It was a classic family Sunday. A ray of sunshine, a neighborhood street sale and the desire to get some fresh air. Marc and Sandrine went to rue Roger Salengro in Ronchin, accompanied by their bichon Abby, “a 12-year-old grandmother”.

In this street, teeming with exhibitors and strollers, a few dozen meters from the local school, Marc Joly spoke to the newly elected mayor of Ronchin. Seconds after leaving it, a dog of the “Staff or American Bully” type, equipped with a harness and leash, but without a master at the end, rushes right at Abby, weighing almost 9 kilos.

“He stopped for a few seconds and went on the attack. My dog ​​flew like a rag doll,” recalls Marc, still amazed.

His wife Sandrine, who was holding Abby on a leash, tried to pull her to save her bichon, but was attacked in turn after being violently grabbed by the hand.

Marc, a direct eyewitness to the attack, grabbed the attacking dog by the harness: “I hit him in the right eye and nose to make him escape, he says. Of course, a lot of people around tried to separate the dogs. He ended up falling backward.”

But the family’s nightmare does not end there: Sandrine faints at the sight of her completely torn off thumb until she is taken care of by the emergency services.
