Nanny defends 3-year-old boy from ‘savage’ dog attack
GENESEE, Colo. -- A local babysitter is being called a hero after withstanding a vicious dog attack in order to protect a 3-year-old boy. Sharon Molloy was babysitting Jack Melichar and his 8-year-old brother last Thursday morning when two black Briard dogs came up on the deck of the home. “(Sharon and the boys) went out on the deck and tried to get the two black dogs to go home,” said Amy Melichar, Jackson’s mother. “Jack was running, and while Jack was running, one of the black dogs went after Jack and started attacking him.”
