[IP] Miniature dachshund gnaws off diabetic owner's toe

ALTON, Ill. -- An Illinois woman says her beloved miniature dachshund  
gnawed off her right big toe while she was asleep. Linda Floyd told  
the Alton Telegraph for a story Wednesday that her beloved Roscoe was  
euthanized because of safety concerns.

The 56-year-old says she has no feeling in her toes because of nerve  
damage from diabetes. She discovered the toe missing after waking  
from a nap Monday. She called her daughter, who phoned 911.

A veterinarian says the toe had been bandaged because of a healing  
hangnail. That might have somehow attracted the dog.
