A tiny dog was rescued from the jaws of a coyote by a neighbor’s Rottweiler, which can be seen in video surveillance footage of the event.
The video recently went viral after being shared on several social media platforms. To date, the clip has been viewed 1.4 million times.
The small dog, a chiweenie named Trixie, can be seen laying in her owner’s yard when she suddenly jumps up and runs toward the house. A coyote attacks the small dog and drags her toward the wooded area.
Luckily for Trixie, she was attached to a leash, which prevented the coyote from dragging her into the woods. At this point, the coyote begins to maul the dog.
The neighbor’s dog, a Rottweiler named Happy, finally jumps into action and attacks the coyote, then chases it off the property.
Trixie received only minor punctures and did not need rabies shots.
According to Trixie’s owner, coyotes are not common in the area.
