As it is, Buster suffered serious wounds – a collapsed lung, deep lacerations, and other injuries requiring major surgery. But it could have been much, much worse.
Lucky for Buster, a neighbor’s Pit Bulls rushed to the scene. Not only did the dogs scare off the coyote, who subsequently released Buster, the Pit Bulls circled the wounded Chihuahua, protecting him from a return attack until Jodi arrived. Buster owes his life to those dogs.
I can relate to Buster — I’ve been rescued by Pit Bulls too. Although not from coyotes. (Usually wily humans.)
