Man Loses Parts of 4 Toes; Puppy Chewed Them Off As He Slept

 

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.

  he's lucky  
 
since he's paralyzed from the waist down, he could've lost something else just as easily.

kinda creepy if you ask me, unless it was the sores, i'd always be afraid the pup might want to finish it's job...

Guess he won't forget to feed his dog before bed next time.

  The puppy  
 
was probably just playing, nibbling his toes, but when it didn't get a reaction it just kept on chewing!

  This is  
 
why I have no pets. Dogs or cats, they're both just wild animals that will turn on you when least expected.

They should all be outlawed!
