GOOD & BAD: Dog saves owner in stabbing \ hold up (New Zealand)
Bonnie the brave dog saved her owner in a violent hold-up in Shannon's public toilets.
The 2-year-old pitbull-staffordshire terrier cross bit the female attacker who stabbed her owner in the thigh with a pocket knife at about 6.15pm on Tuesday.
"I really think I would have been stabbed more than what I was," said her 40-year-old owner, who didn't want to be named.
The woman was walking Bonnie when she needed to use the facilities on Balance Street.
Bonnie went into the cubicle with her.
"She was in the other toilet when I was in there and when I came out she was standing there confronting me as I opened the door.
"I was **** scared.
"I can't get that image out of my head."
The woman did what she was told and handed over $30 and three bottles of medication with her name and address printed on the labels.
This didn't stop the attacker from digging the pocket knife into the woman's right thigh.
Bonnie bit the attacker's arm who then fled the toilets, the woman said. "She told me to 'empty my f****n pockets' and then when Bonnie bit her she said 'you're gonna get it now you f****n *****'.
"Bonnie sensed my fear I think and she acted on it, I'm so proud of her."
The woman did not feel the knife pierce her skin.
It wasn't until she saw blood seeping from her wound that she realised what had happened.
She limped down to the nearby unattended police station and rang the buzzer that connects to the Levin and Foxton stations.
But it wouldn't ring through, she said. "Typical." She limped around the corner to her home where her husband immediately called an ambulance.
She left Palmerston North Hospital with "three or four [stitches] on the outside but they stitched up the inside too".
Fears that Bonnie would be put down were quashed by police and animal control, the woman said.
"I've already spoken to animal control about it because there was a rumour going around town.
"The police said that it was not going to happen."
By law, Bonnie should have been muzzled.
"If I had a muzzle on her last night she wouldn't have been able to protect me. I've never seen that side of her until last night.
Levin police are looking for the offender described as a chubby Maori woman in her late teens or early 20s with short black hair, wearing a black top and jeans.

Hopefully Bonnie the dog doesn't come down with any diseases after biting this scumbag.
