A 62-year-old dad was mauled to death by his son’s American bully dog saying ‘he got me’ and ‘I’m going’ before taking his final breath.
Keven Jones, from Wrexham, North Wales, was looking after his son’s Josh’s dog called Cookie while Josh was at a football match in Wembley.
Josh’s partner Chanel Fong, 28, who was with Keven in his house at the time, heard him telling the dog to ‘get off me’ while he was in the kitchen.
Chanel then rushed into the kitchen to tell Cookie to get down but then spotted blood gushing from Keven’s leg.
Emergency services were called to the scene while Chanel carried out CPR on Keven.
Chanel’s hands were left covered in blood as Keven went into cardiac arrest and he was then pronounced dead at the scene.
Close family claim Cookie is ‘not aggressive in the slightest’ but likes to play and act like a puppy.
Chanel wrote online: ‘I heard Kev say “get off me Cookie” so I went into the kitchen, told Cookie to get down which he did.

‘Anyone who has come into contact with Cookie knows how much of a big fat head play boy he is.
‘He’s not aggressive in the slightest.
‘Just thinks he’s still a small pup and bounces around rather than walk.
‘Kev said “He’s got me there” and as I looked down there was blood pumping from Kev’s leg.
‘I grabbed Cookie’s blanket from his crate to try and keep the wound from bleeding.
‘I carried him to the sofa and called the ambulance.
‘Kev was with me but unresponsive, he grabbed my shoulder and told me he was going.
‘I told him he wasn’t and the call handler told me to lie him on the floor and do compressions.

‘Seven minutes it took for the ambulance service to get to us.
‘It felt like I was doing compressions for an hour.
‘I want to thank North Wales ambulance service, air ambulance, North Wales Police and their special dog handling team.
‘But after working on Keven for 45mins he didn’t take another breath.’
She added: ‘Today has been the worst day of my life.
‘I have had to watch two men who I love so much take their last breath.
‘I can’t shake the feeling of Keven’s blood off my hands and all I can hear in my head is Cookie’s cries.
‘Cookie did not attack Keven, he’s a big boy and plays too rough.
‘Please respect Josh and his family, myself and my family at this absolutely heartbreaking time.
‘Cookie was euthanised in the back garden by a trained vet and the other dogs were checked over by the dog handling team, our special girl Fire was taken as she has an athletic build however the rest they were happy with and they are all tucked up in bed.
‘Rest in peace my darling stupid boy Cookie-Doe and forever rest in peace with a beer my amazing father in law Keven Jones AKA Odde.’
