Bobby, a Jack Russel reportedly needed treatment by a doctor following an an attack by a Rottweiler and another dog.
This happened on Monday, February 5, 2018, in his hometown of Ferrybridge, West Yorkshire says Metro UK. The news platform reported that Wood's 10-second bite ensured that the vicious predator let loose of the Russel.
The Rottweiler and its accomplice were reportedly let off a leash, giving them the opportunity to launch an attack on John Wood's pet who suffered neck injuries that required a treatment put at a cost of £1,000.
“The rottweiler came running round and started attacking Bobby from the back.
“Bobby then tried to defend himself but the white dog jumps in and grabs Bobby by the throat. He was going to kill him, so I started hitting him over the head with a stick.
“He still wouldn’t let go. The next thing, I leapt onto the ground and bit the dog on the flappy bit of its mouth. I bit and bit, just kept biting down for about 10 seconds, until the dog finally let Bobby go.
“He would be dead if I didn’t do it, there’s no doubt about that.
“He had torn all the muscle so they had to stitch that back up, and sew up all the flesh," Wood a pensioner confirmed to newsmen.
