Some people find little dogs, especially the fluffy ones, to be irresistibly cute, while others find their barking and jumping up to be aggressive. One Arkansas man took such a pup off the streets and into his home — and bed — recently and found that it had made a snack out of one of his body parts during the night.
The 39-year-old man in question, who told police that that he is paralyzed from the waist down and has “no feeling from the waist down,” apparently adopted the “small, white, fluffy dog” right off the street about three weeks before the incident. He did not take it to a vet and did not know if the dog had had its shots.
The victim, who told police that he likes to sleep in the nude, awoke to a “burning pain” on July, 29, 2013, at around 7:30 a.m. He noticed that the dog was between his legs. Alarmingly perhaps, he then noticed that the cute little guy had blood on his front paws and snout. That’s when he looked and saw that “the dog had eaten one of his testicles.” Reports don’t say, but we speculate that at this point the man involuntarily let out a high-pitched shriek, loud enough for the whole neighborhood to hear.
They say that all dogs, even the bad ones, get one free bite — no consequences, but in this case police thought better of it and took the dog straight to a vet who euthanized it. The carcass is being tested for rabies. The man was treated at a hospital for his injuries, which we are assuming were permanent.
