A Grimes, Iowa woman is in the hospital after a dog attacked her, her husband and the couple's dog on Sunday evening.
Caren Henry was walking her own dog when a 60-pound Labrador retriever mix launched itself at her, sinking its teeth into her thigh, stomach and face, KDVR news reported.
Her husband Laine was driving to pick her up from her walk in Madrid, Iowa, when he saw the attack taking place and jumped out to rescue her, Metro News reported.
He revealed after the ordeal he had been forced to bite the dog to make it release its grip on his wife and their pet dog, Metro News reported.
She will have to have several reconstructive surgeries to fix her nose, KDVR reported.
