A woman in Ohio bit her neighbor’s pit bull after the dog attacked her pomeranian, police told news outlets.

On the morning of March 28, the unidentified 52-year-old told police she heard her dog, named Kevin, barking outside her home in Newton Township, WFMJ reported.

She ran to the rescue, stood between the dogs and became part of the fight, according to the TV station. During the fight, she sank her teeth into one of the pit bull’s ears, she told investigators.

The woman got Kevin to safety and rushed him to a vet before seeking treatment at a hospital, The Vindicator reported.

When Trumbull County sheriff’s deputies came to see her at the hospital, she was bloodied and scratched, with multiple stab wounds to her arm, the outlet reported. She told MPs that one of her teeth was loose from biting the neighbor’s dog.

According to TV station WKBN, the owner of this dog has to appear in court for failing to keep an animal under control.

His pit bull had multiple bite marks and needed stitches after Monday’s scuffle.
