Mr Litchfield added: "They have made any mistakes and the way it was described at the time, they are terrible parents.

"They don't bleed … they're fantastic. If they're terrible parents they won't sit with the young man now.

"People need to realize there are always two sides to the story.

"The problem is that there is a lot at stake here for everyone, not just them, for us too, as a family."

The pair of Staffordshire Bull Terriers, called Fizzy and Dotty, have been taken from the property and placed in police cages.
