A little dog named Rocky had a close call with a hawk last week.

River City Veterinary Hospital helped Rocky recover after his owners heard a scuffle in the bushes and the hawk flew away.

Rocky didn’t fly off with the hawk, but he had several wounds and punctures in his chest and sides. River City Veterinary Hospital also fixed up a deep laceration through his tongue.

"I think we're really lucky that the hawk didn't take off with him - he was really tiny and that can sometimes happen," says veterinarian Keaton Cuthbert

The little cutie is expected to make a full recovery.

The veterinary hospital is reminding pet-owners to watch those little guys outside.
