Kentucky: Paralyzed Lexington resident Terry Smith found himself in the hospital Tuesday after four of his toes were partially chewed off by China, his 5-6-month-old puppy, while he was asleep. Smith's friend first noticed his bed was full of blood.
Tim Cantrell said "I realized upon closer inspection that his toes were no longer on his feet," speculating that foot sores attracted China. The dog is now in quarantine at a local animal shelter. Cantrell said China is "not aggressive at all."
Neighbors say Smith, who from the waist down has been paralyzed for several years, has been known for animal neglect in the past. Cantrell says he loves China and cares for him. A bag of dog food was found alongside an empty dog bowl by his bed.
