Wow. Now that's fatherly love!
We feel bad for the dog, though.
After realizing that his son Fernando Brignoni had his pinky finger bitten off by a dog, Florida man Luis Brignoni Sr shot and killed the dog.
Here's what the father said:
"You don't know what you will do for your child. You don't know where you get the strength from."
However, the father's actions were unnecessary. The doctors instead grafted his son's skin for a new pinky finger.
The dog wasn't just any stray either - it was the family's dog, an aged Malamute-wolf mix named Sassy.
Just a sad and tragic turn of events, but at least the son has got his pinky finger!
RIP family dog, Sassy.
