Hero dog dies saving sister
A small dog is dead after jumping to the rescue to save his sister in Esquimalt Lagoon. The small Shih Tzu named Cole jumped to the defence of "Opal" when a Pit Bull still connected to his leash but free of its owner attacked her.
The Dog's owner Ron Brown jumped into the fray and began trying to pull the Pit Bull off but to no avail. "The Pit Bull turned from my female, let her go and grabbed him and unfortuanely killed him almost instantly. Grabbed him by the back and opened him up pretty good."
The pit bull, was surrendered to bylaw officers and has been put down.
Opal made it to a veterinary clinic in time to get stitched up and survived the attack.
