"Dangerous dogs" returned to owners8:20pm Friday 24th June 2011

TWO pets suspected of being on the dangerous dogs list have been returned to their owners.

Police seized Aggro and Bullseye from a home in Clacton last week amid fears they were banned pitbulls.

But the dogs were handed back to owner Elaine Miller after tests revealed the animals were legal.

She had protested the Aggro and Bullseye's innocence from the moment they were taken away.

Elaine, 38, said: "They have no characteristics of pitbulls whatsoever - that's why I was so annoyed.

"I'd have been heartbroken if they had turned out to be pitbulls but I knew they weren't."

She said the family was delighted to see their pets back again.

The mum of five added: “The kids are over the moon to have them back.

"My daughter Bayleigh cried most nights they were away because she goes to sleep with Aggro.

"She couldn't wait to go to bed last night because she'd got her friend back which was really nice."

The dogs were kept in kennels for a week after police raided the house in Lupin Way.

Officers were joined by council dog wardens and police dog handlers.

Tests carried out to see if the dogs were on the dangerous breeds list were negative.

A police spokesman said: "Police officers will always act on information where we believe there are dogs that pose a threat to the public and take appropriate action.

"We work closely with the RSPCA and local authorities.

"Where it is found that no offence has been committed, dogs will be returned to their owners."
