Olivier said she knew the dogs were watchdogs and she took extreme care to lock them up when there were visitors.

A Port Elizabeth man's neck was broken when the dog's leash he was wearing got stuck in the wheel of his car, Beeld newspaper reported on Monday.

Rob Emslie, 47, had worn the leash around his neck from time to time after his dog Sheevah died about five weeks ago.

His friend Andy Green told the newspaper Emslie got a new dog but struggled to get over the death of Sheevah.

He was wearing the leash when he visited a restaurant in Kragga Kamma last Monday.

Green said that when Emslie got into his car and closed the door, he did not notice a large part of the leash was hanging outside the car.

As he reversed, the leash got stuck in the wheel and broke his neck.

Police Captain Stanley Jarvis confirmed the incident.

Emslie's new dog was with him at the time and drew the attention of a passer-by by jumping in and out of an open window of the car.

The new dog had not been seen since, Beeld reported. – Sapa
