How Bella the dog survived being stabbed in the HEAD during burglary


Before surgery: The German Shepherd ahead of having the knife pulled out

This brave German Shepherd sits calmly with her owner - just minutes after burglars stabbed an eight inch blade into her skull.

The six-year-old family pet, named Bella, needed emergency surgery to remove the protruding knife after the horrific incident on Saturday.

This shocking picture shows how the robbers narrowly missed the animal's eyes as they plunged the deadly blade into her forehead.

Sickening: Vernon Swart with his Bella while she had a knife in her head

Today Bella's owner Vernon Swart said he feared the worst when he saw the knife sticking out of her skull following the attack at his home in South Africa.

He said: 'I was in the house on Saturday morning when the neighbours called to say our dog was running around in the street with a massive knife in her head.

'I didn't believe them but when I went outside I saw it for myself.

'The neighbours said they had caught intruders trying to enter their home and they must have then tried to get into my place when Bella attacked them in our garden.

'One of them had stabbed her right in the head and the end of the knife was poking out between her eyes.

'The vet couldn't believe what he was seeing and said he had no idea how Bella had survived.
