A Lexington, Kentucky man is recovering after his puppy chewed off
four of his toes as he slept.

Terry Smith, who lives on Bryan Avenue, is paralyzed from the waist
down and says he didn't feel a thing.

Smith's roommate, Tim Cantrell, says he noticed blood on Smith's bed
when he woke up Tuesday morning.

It appears the five-month-old pit bull mix named China, was playing with
her owner's feet and ended up taking off all the toes, except the big toe
on his left foot.

Cantrell says the dog is harmless and has never been violent in the

Smith was taken to St. Joseph Hospital for treatment. Animal control
officials removed the dog from the home.

China will be in the custody of animal control officials for 10 days. After that, it is up to the owner what to do with the puppy.
