Scottish Terrier Saves a Grandfather During Mugging

A 79-year-old grandfather has his dog to thank for saving his life last week.

James Barfield was walking his three-year-old Scottish Terrier, Franky, in his Dallas, Texas, neighborhood when two men mugged him, Fox4 reported (scroll down for video).

The men reportedly kicked Barfield and stole his watch and $20 from his wallet. Franky was likely kicked as well—he has bruised tissue consistent with blunt force.

Barfield believes Franky tried to defend him and licked him until he regained consciousness.
