A man who was attacked by one of his son’s dogs died of blood loss, an inquest has found.

Keven Jones, 65, took his last breath while saying “I’m leaving” after being bitten by Cookie, a two-year-old American Bully, at his son’s home in Wrexham, North Wales.

The former truck driver had offered to sit on the dog while his son Josh was away at a football game at Wembley and his daughter-in-law Chanel Long was also on the road.

When she got back into the house, she heard poor Keven screaming, ‘He got me.’

As she rounded the corner, she found him on the ground, blood pouring from his leg.

Chanel recalled getting Cookie’s blanket from his box to try to stop the wound from bleeding.

She then carried the victim to the sofa and called the ambulance, which took seven minutes to arrive.

In tribute, Chanel later wrote online: “Kev was with me but didn’t respond, he grabbed my shoulder and told me he was leaving.

“I told him he wasn’t and the call handler told me to put him on the floor and do compressions. It took seven minutes for the emergency services to get to us.

“It felt like I was doing compressions for an hour. I would like to thank North Wales Ambulance, Air Ambulance, North Wales Police and their specialist team for dealing with dogs.

“But after working on Keven for 45 minutes, he didn’t take another breath.”

The Home Office pathologist, Dr. Matthew Lyall, gave the preliminary cause of death as blood loss from a leg injury.

Cookie was sedated by a police gunner before being euthanized by a vet.

Despite the horrifying incident on May 23 this year, Chanel insisted the dog “wasn’t aggressive in the slightest.”

Her post also read, “Anyone who has come into contact with Cookie knows what a big fat head playboy he is.

“He just thinks he’s just a little puppy and hops around instead of walking.”

She added: “Today was the worst day of my life. I had to watch two men I loved so much draw their last breath.

“I can’t shake the feeling of Keven’s blood off my hands and all I hear in my head is Cookie’s screams.

“Cookie didn’t attack Keven, he’s a big boy and plays too rough. Please respect Josh and his family, me and my family at this absolutely heartbreaking time.

The coroner adjourned the investigation until a date to be determined when the police could complete their investigation.
