Man punches shark – saves beloved dog!

Florida resident Greg Noir took his wire terrier for his daily swim at a local marina when disaster struck!

A five foot man-eater suddenly surfaced and gripped the 14 pound pup in its powerful jaws!

At the sight of his dog being mauled, Noir went ballistic.  He balled his fits and dove in slamming the shark in the back.

"I couldn’t see the shark when I dived in." Noir told TV station WTVJ.  "But my hands landed solidly against the back of the shark,"

Startled by the man attack, the predator released its grip and both man and dog returned safely ashore.  The pup suffered bite wounds and is now recovering.

The hero revealed his dog can’t stand swimming pools but said he might have to change Jake’s swimming hole now.
