Monstrous German Shepherd Syko mutilates dogs outside owner Lynda Hudson’s La Libaire des Enfants bookstore in New York
- Syko is a two-year-old, 98-pound dog owned by Lynda Hudson, 58, who opened La Libaire des Enfants, a French bookstore, in New York in 2016.
- The vicious dog has been wreaking havoc and terrorizing passing pups on the sidewalk near the store on Manhattan’s East 92nd Street.
A monstrous German shepherd dog named Syko has been attacking other smaller puppies outside his owner’s quaint Upper East Side bookstore, including one that had to be euthanized.
Syko is a two-year-old, 98-pound dog owned by Lynda Hudson, 58, who opened La Libaire des Enfants, a French bookstore, in New York in 2016.
But the ferocious dog has been wreaking havoc and terrorizing passing puppies on the sidewalk near the store on Manhattan’s East 92nd Street, leaving owners with huge vet bills and seriously injured pets.
A poodle named Baby was at least the fourth dog attacked by Syko and her German Shepherd brothers at La Libaire des Enfants in recent months, reports The New York City Times.
Personal trainer Akiba Tripp was walking his 7-pound toy poodle near the bookstore Friday when the owner flung open the door.
Lynda Hudson, 58, opened La Libaire des Enfants in 2016. She owns the ferocious German Shepherd who has been attacking other animals.
Baby, the two-year-old toy poodle whose spine was mutilated by the dog. She was euthanized after the attack.
Hudson got out, as did Syko. He grabbed the poodle ‘into her mouth’, sank his teeth into Baby and broke her spine.
People from neighboring bars ran and tried to drag the dogs across the blood-spattered sidewalk. But Baby couldn’t move because she was paralyzed from the attack.
The baby was euthanized that night after vets told her it was in immense pain. Tripp now wants to file a lawsuit against Hudson, who allegedly offered to adopt and rehabilitate the little dog.
Syko’s owner, Lynda Hudson, told the New York Times: “There’s really something wrong with Syko, and I don’t know what to do.”
I’ve tried everything with this dog, sir. I tried behaviorists and training. He is great with people, but he doesn’t like other dogs.
The attack on Baby was not the only one in recent months.
Psychologist Julia Schafer, another Upper East Side local, said she was leaving her building with her little collie mix Tarsila one day on May 3 when the disaster struck.

Psychologist Julia Schafer, another Upper East Side resident, said she was leaving her building with her little collie mix Tarsila one day on May 3 when the disaster struck.
Her pup was grabbed and mutilated by Syko, whose owner agreed to pay the $850 vet bill. Schafer said: ‘The white bit her and held on to her.’
Just four days before that attack, Syko and another of Hudson’s dogs attacked two puppies: Chloe and a Muppet.
Chloe is a Cavachon and Muppet is a Maltipoo.
Chloe’s owner, Laurie Davis, told the Times: “The next thing I knew, this big white dog had my dog in his mouth.” I’m screaming at the top of my lungs.
Another dog bit into the Muppet’s face, while Chloe needed surgery for her injuries.
The vet bill came to $6,000, which Hudson said he would pay. Since then, Davis has sued in Hudson Small Claims Court.
Lynda Hudson promised that Syko and her four other German Shepherds would stay permanently at her home in Westchester County.
The dogs will no longer be in the store, he said.
