I watched the video - amazing survival of this woof! Brave fellow. I know this is one dog that will always be loved and cared for. And then the Chinese skin them alive for fur and meat? Thanks Jacquelin for this wonderful contribution to the news.

Such a brave little hero. I am so glad he will be ok. What a scumbag to do this. I hope they find him. Get a job loser and leave people alone.

I think the dog was the typ that would do that.. it looks like pittbull .. & if not for this dog the family would have been victimized.. this should at least help the bad name in these dogs.. don't forget that the laws in the United States are trying to outlaw these aggressive dogs.. so its not just China... pittbulls are not all that bad.. it does look like that typ of dog tho..

Surely another angel will step in and pay the vet bill and even bring a few presents for the family. I consider D-Boy a gift from God to this special family. God knew what would happen to them if He didn't put D-Boy in their lives. As my Mom would say, nothing happens by accident. Thank you Jacqueline, for bringing us such a heartwraming story.

Yes, Deborah, it's a pit bull. A very well cared for pit bull. But, as to 'a type of dog that would do that', please understand that most dogs, regardless of breeding, will defend their home and family. Most. The only difference is, a pit bull can and will do more damage because of its strength, not because of its disposition. Pit bulls are not inherently 'aggressive' to humans. But they will defend, to their death, their family. I would much rather have a pit bull than a shit tzu any day of the week. If I could afford it and had it to give, I'd pay D-Boy's vet bill! He's more than earned it!

I have a pit bull and he is very protective of us. He seems to think we are his "pack". But, I also have a little Shih Tzu, and let me tell you, she is as protective as the pit. It is not the breed that counts it is the heart of the creatures that is to be credited. Treated with love and trained right any dog will be a loving guardian angel.I wish I could chip in for his vet bills, but I can't so I'll put him on a prayer chain. Good luck boy.

I understand that.. but what I was trying to write is with all the bad publicity these brave breeds are getting & the states trying to ban them.. this is a plus for them..I didn't mean anything slang about that phrase.."'a type of dog that would do that'".. should of said the typ of breed.. but again you are certainly right.. most dogs would protect there pack... (meaning his human family)...I am sorry if I said something that offended you.. by all means I didn't mean too.. I myself understand the love & protective dog.. but again I appoligze..
