The video shows Brown, 19, running down the Deer Trail II subdivision road, yelling at the dog until the pit bull stops attacking Mason and chases Brown.

The neighbor’s surveillance camera shows the dog knocking Brown to the ground, but he was able to get up and run to safety. 

Crystal Waddel said her son's interference gave Mason enough time to run to his mother’s safety.  

The dog bite to Mason’s head required a few staples and Brown suffered a cut to his hand.

The dog was surrendered to Montgomery County Animal Control.
