Hero Dad: James Hardegree Saves Son Dog Attack, A heroic dad saved his two-year-old son’s life after two dogs mauled him in the family’s backyard.

James Hardegree says he locked two-year-old Colton Brown inside of their home after noticing two dogs, a Rottweiler and a Labrador, that had strayed into their yard fighting over a dead animal in the woods. The toddler, however, was able to get the door open, and as he made his way outside, he became tangled in the chain that one dog was carrying, and both dogs proceeded to rip into his face.

“He came running back out, he got tangled up in the chain of the [Rottweiler], it all just happened so fast,” said Hardegree. “He was just up under them, and they were fighting, and whether or not they meant to get him, they did.”

Hardegree was able to chase the dogs away and heroically save his son’s life, but extensive damage had already been done, so the boy had to be rushed to the hospital for treatment.
