LATEST: British royal Princess Anne has been ordered to send her pet bull terrier dog to an animal psychologist to avoid having it destroyed.

The pooch attacked one of her mother Queen Elizabeth II's beloved corgis just before Christmas (03), injuring it so badly it had to be put down. It also attacked royal maid RUBY BROOKER in a park on Saturday (03JAN04).

British psychologist ROGER MUGFORD said he expected to begin work with FLORENCE this week (beg05JAN04).

The PRINCESS ROYAL became the first member of the British Royal family to hold a criminal record after she was convicted in 2002 of failing to control her dog in public when another one of her terriers DOTTY - who was originally thought to be responsible for the attack on the Queen's corgi - bit two children in a park.
