A YORKSHIRE terrier with just four teeth was seized from its owner for allegedly biting a postwoman.
Three cops took widow Ann Anderson’s tiny dog Albert.

They turned up with a warrant and ordered Ann, 77, to hand the “dangerous” pet over.
Albert lost all but four tiny upper teeth due to mistreatment before she rescued him three years ago.
Lonely Ann said: “I’m lost without him. I had him on a lead and he just tried to take a letter.
“He wouldn’t harm anyone.”

Albert, six, was said to have nipped a woman’s ankle in April and Ann, of Epsom, Surrey, had to sign a dog control measure.
That meant he had to wear a muzzle in public or could be seized. The gummy pet then allegedly bit the postie in July.
An online petition has begun to reunite Albert and Ann that already has 57,000 signatures[/caption]

Surrey Police said the dog was at kennels after magistrates issued a seizure warrant but would not be destroyed.
A spokesman said: “The owner was given the options of surrendering the dog for it to be rehomed or taking the case back to magistrates court.
“The owner has requested the case is taken to court and we are awaiting a court date.”
