A man walking his yorkiepoo on North Jersey Street said his dog was attacked by a black Labrador retriever, which was subsequently beaten by its owner.

Scruffy, the Yorkshire terrier-poodle mix, suffered a 3-inch long wound in the attack around 3:30 p.m. Friday, according to reports.

Police talked to the Labrador's owner, who lives in the first block of North Jersey Street, and told him to quarantine his dog. According to police, the dog cowered with its tail between its legs when it was called by its owner, and the dog was shaking when the owner moved his arms or hands while talking to police, the report stated.
