When a large dog belonging to a neighbor showed up, the woman was out in the garage working around the home for the day.
And without hesitation, the large dog pounded when it saw her tiny white puppy.
Nothing she tried to do to separate them seemed to work—until the family cat appeared.
“Bailey is alive today due to my cat, Mocha. Without a doubt,” Michaella Franklin said.
Bailey fled when Mocha intervened and was able to divert the large dog.
The poor dog underwent surgery after suffering from numerous deep bites, which resulted in a $2,000 vet bill.
The owner of the dog that attacked Bailey has been reported to Nampa Animal Control, and Bailey will return home to recover with her best kitty companion by her side.
