It was just another night at the Perry house. The dogs were inside, happily wrestling and playing while the family looked on. But in an instant, things took a deadly turn.
The family’s smaller dog, Blue, was playing with their bigger dog, Scout, when Scout’s tooth became stuck beneath Blue’s collar. Both dogs panicked. As they struggled to break free, the collar twisted tighter and tighter until Blue began to strangle right before their eyes.
“That’s when our daughter Julia got to them,” Jim Perry said. “She was able to cut the collar off just in the nick of time.” But Blue was in bad shape. They rushed her to the 24-hour emergency clinic where she was admitted in critical condition.
