Jeremy Triantafilo, a four years old autistic boy, was sitting on his bicycle outside his family’s home in Bakersfield, California on Tuesday when the dog escaped its home through an open gate and grabbed him from behind. This dog dragged the little boy to the ground and started tearing his leg with its fangs. But then the little boy’s cat, Tara, came to save him.
