Vicious Yorkshire Terrier Terrorizes Postal Carrier in England

HOW ON EARTH CAN A 6" little 3# pound dog, terrorize ANYONE?

The Royal Mail (London) has stopped deliveries to a street in Northampton after claiming that a Yorkshire terrier attacked a postman.

Residents were sent a letter informing them that no post would be delivered after December 7 because of the actions of the 15cm dog named Peggy, who has been dubbed 'The Beast of Dorset Gardens', AFP reports.

"Because of the dog's behaviour, [the postman] believes your mail cannot be delivered safely and in the circumstances I have instructed him not to deliver mail to your address," the letter read.

However, owner Kathleen Joyce, 49, told the Northampton Chronicle: "Peggy has barked at the postman but she wouldn't hurt anyone. She is only little.

"She has been in this family for ten years and there is no way we are going to get rid of her."

However, an unnamed neighbor who has been forced to make a 22km journey to pick up his mail claimed: "It is a vicious little thing and I have seen it going for the postman."

The local council has warned that Joyce and her family may lose their rented home if they refuse to rehome Peggy.
