CHILLIWACK, British Columbia -

A tiny chihuahua took on a ferocious pit bull to save the life of an 8-year-old girl.

His name is Honey, but in British Columbia, they're calling him "Hero."

The 4-year-old chihuahua sprung into action when a neighbor's pit bull broke into his yard and attacked his owners' granddaughter.

The pit bull took little Jenna Desrochers down by the knees and began mauling her face.

Honey got between the girl and the pit bull, distracting it long enough for the pit's owner to drag the dog away.

Honey's owner, Anne Marie Desrochers, says he saved her granddaughter's life.

"They say she's got a few hundred stitches up here. Her eye was split right open like the eyelid right across and then she's got another wound here on her head.''

Jenna is going to need hours of surgery to repair her wounds.

The pit bull's owners have agreed to put the dog down.
