Brave Dachshund Saves Smaller Dog From Shocking Mountain Lion Attack
Heros Come In All Sizes
Winston, a brave Dachshund, saved his friend’s life when a dangerous mountain lion tried to grab it while they were outside. Unfortunately, Mijo, the small chihuahua/Dachshund mix, still lost an eye, but it could have been much worse.
A Horrifying Attack
According to 9 News in Evergreen, Colorado, Winston’s small size did not deter the courageous dog from defending his friend when they were attached. Apparently, the duo slipped out of the house and was outside playing when a young mountain lion pounced on Mijo. That’s when Winston jumped into action, and immediately went to work saving his fur friend.
A Hero Dachshund
The hero Dachshund barked and charged at the mountain until it dropped Mijo. Once the wild animal ran back into the woods, Lindsay Golden, the dog’s owner, rushed him to the vet. While Mijo did escape death, the dog will still have life-long scars including a losing an eye and possible neurological issues that need to be addressed.
Unfortunately, vet bills, like human hospital bills, can be extremely expensive. Because of that, Lindsay set up a GoFundMe page for her fur family. Mijo has a long road of recovery ahead of him, and he could use all the help he can get. Without a doubt, Winston is thrilled to have his friend, alive and by his side, once again!
