A WOMAN whose dog allegedly killed someone's pet and bit the owner on the face has been cleared of the charge.

Leia Bryson, 20, was on trial at Glasgow Sheriff Court accused of owning a Labrador and Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross that was dangerously out of control on November 17, 2022.

Court papers said the dog killed Chelsea Preston's Maltipoo Teddy and bit the dog's owner to her injury in the city's Maryhill.

The 24-year-old BT employee claimed a “big dog” galloped and leapt at her as she held seven-month-old Teddy in her arms.

Miss Preston said she had to drop Teddy and usher her frightened five-year-old cousin home.

The witness claimed that she was bit on the face which was "full of blood".

When she returned to the scene, she said that the dogs had been separated but Teddy had passed away.

The dog was later kept in a box to be cremated.

Kevin Corr, defending, made a no case to answer submission at the end of the Crown case.

Sheriff Kevin McCarron upheld the submission and acquitted Bryson of the single charge.
