12 Year Old Basset Hound Survives Attack by a 7 Foot Alligator
May 2010. While alligator attacks against dogs are almost always fatal, Sophie, a 12 year old Basset Hound, managed to survive one.
She was out on a walk when she was grabbed by an alligator that launched out of a lake and grabbed her. Apparently, she was grabbed and released by the "gater" several times and at one point was pulled under water.
Somehow she managed to get away and is now recovering at home after spending five days in intensive care.
