The hunt is on for a man accused of kicking a dog so brutally in the face that the front row of the innocent pooch’s teeth were all knocked out.
The alleged attack is believed to have happened in Sydney’s CBD about 10.00pm last night.
Police say a woman was walking her two dogs, Sootie and Timmy, in The Rocks area, when she sat down at a bench on the corner of Argyle and Kent Streets.

A short time later, the woman was approached by a man with a dog, who began barking and growling at her dogs.
“Sootie growled back and the man intervened, kicking the dog in the face,” NSW Police said.
The man then grabbed the woman’s phone and threw it on the ground, stomping on it before walking away.
The woman went straight to the police station to report the incident, which left her beloved dog without its front teeth.
Investigators are now appealing for anyone who recognises the man in the below footage to come forward to police.
He is described as being of Caucasian appearance, aged in his 60s, about 170cm tall, of a medium build, and with grey hair.
