A man bites a dog to save his wife and their family dog last Sunday, April 28 in Des Moines, Iowa, according to a news report at WhoTv.com this Friday. Laine Henry told the paper that his wife Caren was walking their beagle dog Kandy on Sunday night, when a 50-pound Labrador mix attacked them.

As noted in the report, Laine was about to fetch his wife in a road near his father’s home, when he saw the black-and-white dog attacking his wife without a warning. He immediately jumped to fight with the dog, so he can save his wife from the mad dog, which was named Buddy. The Henry couple lives in Grimes.
“Caren turned and looked at me and I seen her face was nothing but blood, so I bit the dog literally in the nose and he let go and I grabbed our dog and I grabbed her and I put them in our pick-up and took off.” Laine said during the news interview at Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines, where they are being treated.
“It got me here and I had my sunglasses on which I’m glad I did because I think it might have taken my eye as well as my nose, then it knocked me down and then it went after my dog. It could have been a lot worse, he could have got my neck, and he could have taken my eye.” Caren Henry said.
“I’m a dog lover and I can understand wanting to keep your dog, but if you know your dog’s done this why don`t you have this tied up, why don’t you have it in a kennel, why is it running loose in someone’s yard.” Caren added, who also suffered from bites on her thigh and abdomen.
Meanwhile, local police records show that the same Labrador attacked another dog in 2012 in Des Moines. Unfortunately, there is no vicious dog ordinance in Dallas County, which could hold dog owners responsible for the attack. Fortunately, Buddy was proven to have rabies shots by a veterinarian.
The mad dog has been ordered to be quarantined for 14 days, and is not allowed to be with any other animals. Afterwards, it will be returned to its owner. But since it is not certain as who owns the dog, authorities said that it will be set free and the case will be closed.
