Bulldog saves owner’s leg by eating his toe

And other stories from the stranger side of life

A bulldog puppy who chewed his owner’s toe to the bone may have saved his leg, reported Wales Online. David Lindsay was taking a nap on his sofa when he woke up to find that his seven-month-old puppy had been nibbling on his foot, so much so that his toe had been fractured and was covered in blood. When he was taken to hospital, he discovered that he had been unable to feel the chewing because he had blocked arteries in both legs. He might have lost both legs unless the problem was identified, he was told by medics. “You’ve got to laugh about it,” said Lindsay. “He’s done me a favour by chewing my toe.”
