A mother has revealed how she survived a dog attack so savage that police thought she had been fed to the hounds deliberately.

Beata Obuchowska, 34, suffered horrific injuries at the teeth and claws of two German and Belgian shepherds kept in a compound at a farm in Hertfordshire.

Ms Obuchowska had been working as a cleaner at Warren Farm in Great Amwell, when the dogs struck - tearing flesh from her arm down to the bone, biting into her legs and chewing her fingers off. 

Ms Obuchowska has now revealed how she managed to stay alive during the traumatic ordeal in October 2014.

She told the Mirror: 'One bit the right arm, the other bit my leg – then they put me on the floor and played with me.

'One dog would drag me one way, the other another way. I'm 5ft4in and only about 9st4oz. I was like a toy to them.'

The mother-of-one, a Polish national who has lived in Britain for 11 years, was forced to undergo 24 painstaking operations as a result of devastating injuries. 

They were so severe that she remained in hospital for two and a half months and while surgeons managed to save her left arm, her right middle finger and right index finger had to be amputated.

Nijamul Islam, who ran the dog compound, was jailed for two and half years after pleading guilty to two charges of being in charge of a dog which was dangerously out of control. 

Ms Obuchowska explained how she thought of her seven-year-old daughter to keep her motivated as the dogs ripped into her body, and did 'whatever came into my mind' to stay alive.
