Well the old saying says, “desperate times require desperate action” and Laine Henry of Iowa would probably agree that watching his wife and pet get mauled nearly to death qualified as a desperate time that left him with no choice but to bite the attacking dog.
Caren Henry was just taking an innocent stroll with her Beagle when a large Labrador Retriever mix ran out of its yard and launched itself at her. The dog bit her multiple times in various areas of her body including her thighs, stomach, and face. Then the vicious dog attacked her Beagle too.
Laine Henry says he was driving to pick up his wife when he witnessed the attack and rushed to her defense.
According to WHO – TV, Laine Henry said, “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.” Despite his bravery and heroic actions, the dog still managed to bite him on the left arm.
But the woman is counting her blessings even though she will have to go through several reconstructive operations to repair her nose area. According to Examiner.com, doctors will take cartilage from her ears and other areas of her body to do the work. Her husband also suffered from the bite he received. The bite to his arm became infected and he was forced to take a few days off work.
Sadly, the attacking dog’s owner or the dog will not receive any criminal penalties because Dallas County does not have a vicious dog ordinance. Thus, after the 14 day test and watch procedure it will be returned to its owner as long as it passes all health tests.
At SABRE Red we understand the emotional, physical, mental, and financial toll these kinds of attacks can cause a family. Because of this, we developed the Protector Dog Spray that can deter the attacking dog at a safe distance. Recently approved by the Environmental Protection Agency, Protector Dog Spray provides an all-natural food grade pepper spray formulation which stops the attack safely. This spray is the safest way to protect yourself, loved ones, or pets because it does not injure the attacking dog, but it does temporarily sting the eyes of the dog, providing the necessary time for pets and their owners to escape to safety.
