Pictured: Father, 62, mauled to death by his son’s American Bully-type dog which bit him on the leg while he was looking after him at house
A dad took his final breath while saying ‘I’m going’ after he was bitten by an American Bully-type pet called Cookie.
Keven Jones, 62, offered to help look after the pet dogs while son Josh went to Wembley for a football match.
He was in the kitchen when his son’s partner Chanel Fong, 28, heard him telling the powerful dog: ‘Get off me.’
Chanel rushed into the room in Wrexham, North Wales, to tell Cookie to get down – but then spotted blood pouring from Keven’s leg.
Emergency services rushed to the scene while desperate Chanel, who is the partner of Keven’s son Josh, carried out CPR.
Chanel was left with her hands covered in blood as Keven went into cardiac arrest and was later pronounced dead by paramedics.

Chanel Fong, partner to Keven’s son Josh, called the ambulance and administered CPR before the paramedics arrived, she says the dog was not aggressive
The family say the dog is ‘not aggressive in the slightest’ but likes to play as if it was a small puppy.
Paying tribute, Chanel wrote online: ‘I heard Kev say get off me Cookie so I went into the kitchen, told Cookie to get down which he did.
‘Anyone who has come into contact with Cookie knows how much of a big fat head play boy he is.
‘He’s not aggressive in the slightest.
‘Just thinks he’s still a small pup and bounces around rather than walk.
‘Kev said ‘He’s got me there’ and as I looked down there was blood pumping from Kev’s leg.
‘I grabbed Cookie’s blanket from his crate to try and keep the wound from bleeding.
‘I carried him to the sofa and called the ambulance.
‘Kev was with me but unresponsive, he grabbed my shoulder and told me he was going.
‘I told him he wasn’t and the call handler told me to lie him on the floor and do compressions.

‘Seven minutes it took for the ambulance service to get to us.
‘It felt like I was doing compressions for an hour.
‘I want to thank North Wales ambulance service, air ambulance, North Wales Police and their special dog handling team.
‘But after working on Keven for 45mins he didn’t take another breath.’
She added: ‘Today has been the worst day of my life.
‘I have had to watch two men who I love so much take their last breathe.
‘I can’t shake the feeling of Keven’s blood off my hands and all I can hear in my head is Cookie’s cries.
‘Cookie did not attack Keven, he’s a big boy and plays too rough.
‘Please respect Josh and his family, myself and my family at this absolutely heartbreaking time.
‘Cookie was euthanised in the back garden by a trained vet and the other dogs were checked over by the dog handling team, our special girl Fire was taken as she has an athletic build however the rest they were happy with and they are all tucked up in bed.
‘Rest in peace my darling stupid boy Cookie-Doe and forever rest in peace with a beer my amazing father in law Keven Jones AKA Odde.’

Neighbours said they heard screaming at around 11.30am.
One said: ‘It is a terrible tragedy. I’ve heard they were involved in breeding these dogs and there were at least three in the house.’
A North Wales Police spokeswoman said: ‘The dog was securely contained at the property and was euthanised by a vet.
‘Other dogs kept at the property will be temporarily kennelled whilst enquiries are ongoing.
‘An investigation into this incident remains ongoing and officers are liaising with the family of the deceased.’
