Fox 59 says a Los Angeles Maltese, with only three teeth in its mouth, recently fought off a coyote. David and Erin Mascaluso said their dog Vinny is 11 years old and weighs 10 pounds.

The confrontation happened recently when a coyote jumped their fence and was attempting to carry Vinny’s brother off in his mouth. Vinny sprinted at the coyote and chased him off. A second coyote decided not to get involved. Vinny’s brother needed stitches for his lacerations. He is expected to be okay

David told KTLA  “He’s always been a scrapper, oh yeah. The first day we brought him home, I went and I pet him and he started growling at me.” You know, a little 10-pound, three-tooth dog … and 11 years old, chased off a 60-pound coyote. So, it’s pretty amazing. He did a great job. He’s our little hero.”
