the World Cup. A 48-year-old woman saved a boy from being attacked by a Tibetan mastiff, Orient Today reported on Thursday. Wang Junrong, who is only 1.53 meters tall, was helping her neighbor move furniture when she saw the neighbor’s Tibetan mastiff break free from its restraining chain and approach a 4-year-old boy. She ran in front of the boy and asked him to leave. She then fought the dog for 20 minutes before being rescued and sent to a hospital.
