India has a large dog population, and it is not always safe to let one loose in the country.
According to a report in the Hindustan Times, an unnamed man and his dog were attacked in the city of Amritsar by unidentified people who tried to run over their vehicle.
The dog, named Greyhound, was injured.
Police say the man has not been arrested and they are waiting for the dog to be taken to a veterinary clinic.
In May, a man and two dogs were killed in Delhi, and the dog was also attacked.
The dogs’ owners were also injured.
