A woman in Melbourne, Australia became a hero (at least in her dog’s eyes) when she resorted to using her middle finger to break up a fight between her Jack Russell terrier and a larger dog.
Ann Bendouli says she was walking 1-year-old Lexy at an off-leash beach, when suddenly a Staffordshire Terrier started attacking.
The big dog snatched Lexy into his mouth, tearing into her skin and flinging her like a limp rag.
Both Bendouli and the Staffordshire’s human, Barbara Williams, tried to separate the 2 dogs, but all their efforts were in vain.
Bendouli was hell-bent on rescuing Lexy. She lifted the Staffordshire’s tail and sank her finger in his anus as deep as it would go. The stunned dog let out a great big yelp and dropped Lexy on the spot.
Lexy was taken to a clinic, where her deep wounds were treated and stitched up. Williams had half of a toe bitten off during the ordeal.
