Guide Dogs Cymru is calling for a change in the law after a guide dog was attacked and injured just yards from her owner's home.
Julie Rees, of Swansea, screamed for help as a loose dog flew at black Labrador Gwen, who was working and in harness. The attacker clamped its jaws around the guide dog's throat as she yelped in pain.
Pontypool RFC has chosen Guide Dogs Cymru as its charity of the season. Christian Hyde and his guide dog Sasha went along to Pontypool Park to meet club captain Luke Dyckhoff, launching the club's bid to raise enough money to Name a Puppy by the end of the season.
