Family Says Pit Bull Helped Save 7-Year-Old’s Life In Vicious Dog Attack

GRAMBLING, Louisiana – With bite marks covering his legs, arm and head, seven-year-old Howard Kirkpatrick, Jr. is fighting for his life.

Grambling Police said he was attacked by a pit bull Monday afternoon, but his father claims that is not the case.

“It was not a pit bull. It was a mastiff and she is a great big dog and I’ve never seen any aggression in her,” said the victim’s father Howard Kirkpatrick.

He said he was watching the mastiff for cousin, and when his son didn’t respond to his call to come inside that’s when he knew something was wrong.

“I looked for him and he was in the backyard by the fence and the mastiff had him,” said Kirkpatrick.

Now he is calling Junior’s pit bull, Missy Bell, a hero after she came to the rescue.
