A man in Truro, UK describes how his pet dog Kimbo saved his life by fighting off another vicious dog in a park. Peter Fitzgerald (58) was having an evening walk in the nearest park with Kimbo. Suddenly a Pitbull Mastiff jumped on him in an extreme, violent way. Peter recalls, "That dog attacked me, knocked me on the floor, pinned me on the floor and basically started eating the back of my head." When Kimbo saw his owner getting attacked, he jumped on the Pitbull Mastiff and pulled it back. It left Peter with a horrified wound on his head. Peter was rescued by the nearby residents.
Peter had to undergo hundreds of stitches, steel pins and almost three hours of plastic surgery. Now he is doing perfectly fine. He said: "If it hadn't been for my dog helping me, I would be dead." All the credit goes to Kimbo.
