This is the horrifying moment a small dog was grabbed by the neck in a savage attack by an XL Bully.
Terrifying footage shows the XL Bully lunge at the small white dog before sinking its teeth into its neck and gripping onto it in Maghull, Merseyside on Sunday.

A witness said the XL Bully’s owner had told the owner of the small dog, ‘lift your dog because I can’t control her’, before the vicious animal slipped out of its collar.

Merseyside Police were called to reports that a dog had been attacked by another dog on Old Hall Road, Maghull, at around 4.45pm on Sunday.
The man holding the small dog can be seen hitting the XL Bully in an attempt to free the pup. The XL Bully had to be prised off the smaller dog by members of the public.
Police officers have confirmed the small dog was taken to a vet for a check-up and the XL Bully’s owner has been spoken to by police.
The footage of the attack surfaced on social media, where people expressed anger at the XL Bully not being on a lead.
One person said: ‘Why is the dog off its lead? This is what I don’t get.’ The person who posted the video clarified that the dog had escaped.
A spokesperson for Merseyside Police said: ‘We can confirm we received a report that a dog had attacked another dog in Maghull yesterday, Sunday 10 September.
‘At around 4.45pm, it was reported a dog, believed to be an XL bully, had been walking on Old Hall Road when it slipped out of its collar and ran away from its male owner.’
The spokesperson added: ‘It then bit another dog before its owner and a member of the public managed to separate them.
‘The attacked dog was taken to a vet for a check-up. The owner of the XL bully has been spoken to by officers.

Earlier today, it was revealed that a man was arrested on suspicion of possessing a dangerously out of control dog after an 11-year-old girl was mauled by an Amercian XL Bully.
West Midlands Police said they had arrested a 60-year-old man following the incident at the weekend which also left two men injured.
The American XL Bully and Staffordshire bull terrier crossbreed puppy broke free from its collar in Bordesley Green in Birmingham on Saturday afternoon and savaged Ana Paun, 11, as she walked home from buying sweets with her sister.
Police said two men who tried to help lure the dog away from the Ana were also attacked and injured as the horror unfolded along a busy street and petrol station forecourt.
There was also another incident today involving two American Bully XL dogs who broke into a garden and savagely mauled a cat to death.
The two beasts were caught in the middle of the night on Ring doorbell footage barging into the front garden of a home in Hounslow, West London.
The animals launched for one cat, which managed to dart into a bush and escape. But a second cat wasn’t so lucky, as it was pinned to the floor by the growling dogs, who tore into the screeching feline, killing it.
The attack was the latest in a slew of incidents in the London suburb which has left the community terrified – and comes amid mounting pressure for the ‘lethal’ XL Bully breed to be banned in Britain.
