Man Bites Dog on Nose to Save Wife From Brutal Attack

http://www.desmoinesregister.com/vid...video2|article

May 3, 2013

Caren Henry was walking her 9 year old beagle Kandy on Sunday April 28th, when they were attacked by a large dog. Her husband Laine tried to fight the attacking dog off and finally had to bite it on the nose to save his wife.

Written by
Daniel P. Finney

Caren and Laine Henry walked their pet beagle along a gravel road near Laine’s father’s home in rural Madrid on Sunday afternoon. Their dog was on a leash and happily trotting along the trail, leading its owners.

“It was a perfect spring day,” Caren Henry remembered.

Then a 50-pound Labrador retriever mix with a black-and-white coat bounded out of a yard. The dog, named Buddy, plowed into Caren Henry. It bit into her right thigh and abdomen, puncturing the skin in both places.

Then the dog went for her face. It bit and scratched at her eyes, breaking her sunglasses. Finally the dog clamped on her nose and tore it off.

Laine Henry hustled to help his wife. He fought the dog, which bit his left arm. “He finally had to bite the dog in its nose, and it let loose,” his wife said.

The Henrys, who live in Grimes, ended up at Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines.

Caren Henry is beginning a series of reconstructive surgeries that she hopes will restore her nose. The bite on Laine Henry’s arm became infected. It was so severe that he had to take leave from his work as a heavy equipment operator.

And the dog? The dog is under 14 days confinement at a residence in Des Moines. Under the terms, the dog may not be with any other animals and must be on a leash at all times when outdoors. Dallas County does not have a vicious dog ordinance that would require criminal penalties for the dog’s owner and potentially lead to the animal being put down.

The Dallas County Sheriff’s Office referred the matter to the county’s environmental health office. Director Ted Trewin ordered the quarantine, as recommended by the Iowa Department of Pubic Health Rabies Resource Manual. If the dog clears veterinary health tests after 14 days, it will be released back to its owner.

The county has no animal control facilities and no place to quarantine or cage a potentially vicious dog.

Des Moines police had impounded the dog in 2012 for attacking another dog. The animal was certified current on rabies shots by a veterinarian at that time, a relief to the Henrys.

“It could have been so much worse,” Caren Henry said.

“If I hadn’t been wearing my sunglasses, I’m sure I would be missing an eye. If it had gotten ahold of my throat, I’d be dead.”

Who owns the dog is another mystery. The dog was staying with Marcus Johnson of the Zook Spur Road address. Johnson told authorities he doesn’t own the dog. It belongs to Thomas Goodson, who is homeless in the Des Moines area, Johnson told officials.

Johnson occasionally provides food and shelter to the dog, but it doesn’t stay with him on a permanent basis, he said. However, Ryan Beattie, an attorney representing the Henrys, said neighbors told him the dog is at the Johnson residence most of the time.

Efforts to reach Johnson by telephone Thursday were unsuccessful.

The Henrys both work and have health insurance, but how much of the surgeries will be covered is unknown. Doctors plan to take cartilage from Caren Henry’s ear and elsewhere on her body to rebuild her nose. It will take multiple surgeries.

“We took pictures at the hospital, and it was the most grotesque things I’ve ever seen,” Beattie said. “There’s just a hole where a nose should be.”

Correction

This story was updated May 3, 2013, to reflect this correction: A Friday article incorrectly stated the duration and place of quarantine for a dog that attacked a Grimes couple near Madrid on Sunday. The animal is confined at a residence in Des Moines for 14 days, based off the Iowa Department of Public Health Rabies Resource Manual. The animal may not be with other animals outside unless on a leash. If the dog passes a veterinary examination at the end of the confinement period, it is released back into the custody of its owner.

Additionally, Dallas County Environmental Health Director Ted Trewin did not look up the dog's previous quarantine for attacking another animal. That information was provided to him by an attorney for the couple attacked. Trewin confirmed the dog was current on rabies shots.

Re: Man Bites Dog on Nose to Save Wife From Brutal Attack

Daaaaaaamn! See, this is why people should not let their animals wander about unsupervised!!! This makes me angry. It could have been prevented if the guy, who claims he is only 'watching' the dog, took some responsibility. Either make the dog yours and be responsible for it, or turn it over to someone who will. And don't let it out without a leash!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you are the pet watcher, you are responsible!

If you don't want to be bothered, get another job, or don't do any favors! Were you able to watch the video? The woman tells the story.

Dog should be euthanized.

I agree! Be responsible or don't watch the dog.

As far as the videos, I didn't watch them because my computer is being a spaz. It is getting so slow. I've tried running my anti-virus and what not but it's not helping. It takes so long to even open a new browser tab that I didn't watch the videos. That poor woman though. Imagine if her husband hadn't been there to help.

No reason for a dog to attack like that. Clearly this dog was not being raised right.

Neither was my neighbor's German Shepherd! He was an abused dog, trained as an attack dog who has bitten 5 people so far.

This piece of white trash and I fight all the time. I'm usually a, "live and let live," person, but, this dog doesn't belong in a city. He jumps over the neighbor's fence, where they have a bull/pit bull mix and is very nice.

She expects them to pay toward a higher fence, lol! Meanwhile, her fence is only on three sides because they have a fence for their dog.

He barks constantly. She must be having sex with him since she won't part with him.

Trust me. Since she told me he hasn't bitten me yet, I will be the last person he bites! When I've called the police and animal control, she runs out the back door. The one policeman told me they can get a good grip on you.

She won't be happy until he severly hurts one of the kids coming home from school. Dumb ass! Lets him out when they're coming home.

She used to let her last little friendly dog, who died of old age, on our lawn and I used to throw the shit back in her yard. She'd intentionally let him off the lease right at our house.

I hope the German Shepherd attacks her so I can send you all pictures I told her it would be on facebook.

Reminded me of this dog, who lost his snout protecting someone.
