Man dives in to save dog from Fla. shark attack

ISLAMORADA, Fla. - A dog is recovering after a Florida Keys carpenter dove in to save his pet from a shark.

Greg LeNoir said he took his 14-pound rat terrier Jake for a daily swim at a marina last Friday.

The five-foot shark suddenly surfaced and grabbed nearly the entire dog in its mouth.

LeNoir said he yelled, then balled up his fists and dove headfirst into the water off a pier. He hit the shark in the back and the creature finally let go of the dog.

“I couldn’t see the shark when I dived in ... so I just put my fist together ... but my hands landed solidly against the back of the shark,” LeNoir told NBC-affiliate WTVJ.

Man and dog made it safely back to shore. The dog suffered bite wounds but was not critically injured.

“I thought Jake deserved whatever I could do,” LeNoir said of his heroism.

LeNoir told NBC 6 that Jake “can’t stand swimming pools,” but that he might have to change Jake
