The Trials and Tribulations of Being a Small Dog in a BIG WORLD

Just look at the sweet face on 12.5-year-old red smooth Jake as he finds comfort in his human's arms. Jake was attacked by a bull mastiff and a rottweiler last week when he went outside for a walk with his human, Terri Kuske, of Lebanon, Oregon. Although she checked for her neighbors' large dogs before she took him out, they surprised her and Jake, resulting in the mastiff at his throat, and the rottweiler at his belly. She laid down on top of her boy, who was bleeding profusely, to stop the attack.

Jake spent just one night at the Animal Hospital before being released to Kuske’s care. He had six puncture wounds, a punctured lung and hernias and was traumatized.
Kuske got one puncture wound that went all the way through one finger and into another as well as scrapes on other fingers. She was treated at Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital.

Oh, poor baby! I'd do the same thing for my dogs.

I would too. Why is it so hard for people to watch their big dogs?
