Lexington, KY resident Terry Smith wound up in the hospital Tuesday after his pit bull puppy "China," chewed off parts of four of his toes. Smith is paralyzed from the waist down and apparently didn't feel the dog chewing on his feet while he was asleep.
He was found by his friend Tim Cantrell, who had stayed the night, in a bed full of blood. Cantrell said, "I want to say the dog's not a bad dog. It's just a puppy. It's that guy's pride and joy, you know. I don't know what happened. I guess it was just playing and just kept playing."
China is being quarantined at animal control, where he will stay for at least 10 days. Despite it all Smith wants his puppy back.
