UPDATE: The dog was identified as a pit bull Australian shepherd mix and was relinquished by the owner and the dog has been euthanized.
Quincy-"The dog, when I was riding my scooter, it got out, and dragged me, off my scooter, and it started biting me," Blake said.
Billy Phelps and his son Collin happened to be driving past when the attack was happening, and managed to get the dog away from Blake.
"It was just an instinct thing," Billy said. "I didn't even think about what would happen if the dog would have turned on us or anything. Just seeing that little boy laying on the ground, screaming and crying, it was just an instant reaction, just pull over, stop and do something."
"I was happy when he got the dog off me because I didn't want to get bit no more," Blake recalled.
Blake's mom Megan is thankful both Phelps and his son arrived when they did.
"I couldn't imagine if it had been any worse," Megan said. "I don't think a mother should ever have to witness her son, any of her kids in that much fear, I'll never forget it, I'll never forget his face."
