A 17-year-old girl from Richmond, California saved his four-year-old brother after their family dog attacked the youngster.
The vicious attack occurred on Dec. 29 at the siblings's home, after they were playing under a blanket on the couch, when their pet rottweiler joined the pair and began biting Kaizen Laset multiple times on his head.
"My daughter she grabbed scissors to stab the dog in the face so he could let go of my son," Kaizen's mother Ning Laset told KTVU.
The young boy was rushed to the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital in Oakland, where he received 60 stitches, requiring him to shave off his long, dark hair.
"He’s so strong," Laset said. "He never complained that he’s hurt."
While Kaizen is expected to make a full recovery, the dog wasn't given the same optimistic fate.
