Meanwhile, last summer a woman accused Gerard Butler of lashing out following a vicious fight between the pair's dogs. Butler's unleashed pet Lolita bumped noses with Maria Vareckas' greyhound when the pair were out walking their dogs in New York, sending the animals into attack mode. Vareckas accused the actor of "verbal abuse", insisting Butler flew into a rage and slammed her dog's head against a nearby fence.
A couple of years ago Jennifer Lopez was wrapped up in a $5 million lawsuit after her pet dog allegedly attacked an air stewardess.
