The lovable pup in question, Blaze, a rottweiler-red heeler cross, has killed two pets and maimed other neighbourhood pets, reports the Canberra Times.

Folklaw wonders if the names of the neighbourhood dogs involved could be argued as a provocation defence for Blaze the bruiser.

In September last year Blaze pounced on Precious, a silky terrier belonging to another resident of the street. Precious died from her wounds.

In April this year there was another attack on a dog living in the street. The schnauzer, called Sunny, survived but has still not recovered from its injuries.

May Sunny and Precious rest in peace.

In Mr Robertson's appeal to the tribunal, he pledged to upgrade the security of his backyard and wrote of his daughter's affection for Blaze. The case is listed for hearing next month.
