GRIMES, Iowa — A Grimes woman is in the hospital after a dog attacked her, her husband and the couple’s dog on Sunday evening.

Caren Henry said she was just walking her dog, Kandy, near her father-in-laws home in rural Madrid when she saw something out of the corner of her eye.

“This dog came racing across this yard, a big dog,” she said.

Caren says a 50-60 pound Labrador mix, ran straight towards her and started attacking.

“It got me here and I had my sunglasses on which I’m glad I did because I think it might have taken my eye as well as my nose, then it knocked me down and then it went after my dog,” says Caren Henry.

Caren’s husband, Laine, was driving to pick her up when he saw the attack and jumped out to help.

“Caren turned and looked at me and I seen her face was nothing but blood, so I bit the dog literally in the nose and he let go and I grabbed our dog and I grabbed her and I put them in our pick-up and took off,” says Laine Henry.

The dog also bit Caren’s thigh and abdomen.

She will have to have several reconstructive surgeries to fix her nose.

Laine is recovering from the bite to his arm.
