Katie Price has reportedly invested in a second protection dog to help "make her home safer" after she was allegedly assaulted last month.

The 43 year old revealed she was left with bruising and taken into hospital after she was allegedly punched while watching TV.

After revealing she is feeling "strong" after her alleged attack, Katie has now reportedly invested in another black German Shepard dog, named Okra.

A source told The Sun: "Katie has bought another black German Shepherd, the same breed as her existing security dog, Blade.

"He's being trained to a second elite level – making him even better trained than a police dog.

"Having both Blade and her new dog Okra around will help make Katie's home feel safer after it was burgled and she was assaulted."

OK! has contacted Katie's representatives for comment.

She is already a proud owner to German Shepard Blade, which she got from Protection Dogs World-wide.

Katie first got Blade in 2019 after she was held at gunpoint in a terrifying car jacking in South Africa.

The model previously opened up about the harrowing ordeal in South Africa as she appeared on Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins last year.

Katie revealed the terrifying incident had caused her to check into the Priory mental health hospital, where she was diagnosed with PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder).

When asked on Celebrity SAS when she was held at gunpoint she said: “South Africa with my kids. That’s the first time I’ve ever had a proper gun to my head thinking I was gonna die, f**king horrific.”

Katie, who recently cancelled her first performance after the assault, was at her home in Essex when she was assaulted in the early hours of Monday 23 August.

Following the alleged attack, a 32 year old man was arrested on suspicion of assault, theft and coercive and controlling behaviour before being released on bail.

A spokesperson for Essex Police previously told OK!: "A 32-year-old man arrested on suspicion of assault, theft and coercive and controlling behaviour has been released on bail until 20 September."

Speaking of the ordeal, Katie told The Sun: "I've got a big bruise, my face is all puffy, and I went to hospital.

"I'm still all dazed. I'm devastated. I've told police that I was assaulted, and am in shock that this happened.

"I ran away after being punched — I ran to Harvey's house nearby and have now done damage to my feet, which I previously injured. I can't say any more."
