A Florida man dove into the water to save his 14 pound rat terrier Jake from a shark. The 5 foot shark surfaced and chomped nearly the whole dog in one bite. The owner dove in and balled up his fist and pummeled the shark on the back and the shark let go of the dog.
Now, look at this pup - see that gremlin- like look? Knowing the terrier spirit like I do, Jake probably picked the fight.
Great story. I love that among the news bits of dogs doing heroic things to save their people, there are people who lay it all on the line to save their pets.
