Small Dog Helps a Girl – level 3

30-01-2023 15:00

A four year old chihuahua named Honey may be small, but she makes up for it in courage. She showed this skill off after a much bigger pit bull attacked her owner’s granddaughter, Jenna.

Honey came to her rescue, bravely drawing the aggressive dog away. People later caught the pit bull and put it down.

The pit bull had bit Jenna so badly that she needed over a hundred stitches to fix her eye and hours of surgery. It could have been much worse, however, if the brave chihuahua had not sprung into action.

Difficult words: make up for (compensate), put down (kill), stitch (a special thing for closing a cut), sprung (moved quickly).

How did Honey help save Jenna's life?
