‘A man is in a serious condition in hospital after he was stabbed and pelted with puppies when he tried to stop thieves stealing rare dogs.
The man found an intruder stealing dogs when he returned with a friend to her home in suburban Melbourne late last night.
“As they’ve approached her property they’ve seen a man running out of the premises with five jack russell-cross-dachshund puppies,” police spokesman Adam West said.
The thief was attempting to drive off with the dogs when the unidentified man ran up to the car and began kicking it. The intruder responded by throwing two of the puppies at him.
“As he’s kicking the car another man’s got out of the car and stabbed him several times, causing serious injuries,” West said.’
