However, the perpetrator stabbed Pyro 3 times as he tried to get even with the brave dog. Police managed to control the rest of the situation, but Pyro’s deep stab wounds on his neck rendered him unconscious. He was rushed to emergency care.

The veterinarians performed emergency surgery on Pyro, but his chances of survival looked quite dim. On top of that, Pyro’s stomach twisted, which further complicated his situation.
