Coyote grabs small dog and runs off. Then, neighbor's dog jumps in to save the day

Trixxie is in big trouble in this security cam video from September 4, 2010. This little black chi-weenie is minding her own business on a chain outside in her own backyard early one morning when a coyote shows up. She sees it and tries to run, but it's too late.
The coyote grabs her and starts dragging her toward the trees. She puts up a fight, but the coyote is a lot bigger than her. Trixxie is about to become a meal.

Suddenly, across the driveway comes Happy, Trixxie's rottweiler neighbor. Happy is big and angry, and Happy goes right for the coyote. When it spots Happy, the coyote first tries to drag Trixxie faster. Then it tries to run. Then it runs in the other direction as Trixxie gets away. Exit the coyote to the left with Happy hot on its heels, destination and fate unknown.
The owners reported that this was in the middle of the city, at an unusual time for a coyote attack. Also, Trixxie was only left outside for a few minutes. No coyotes had previously been reported in the area.
They said Trixxie probably would have been dragged off for good if she hadn't been on the chain, but that Happy definitely saved her life. Happy is Trixxie's dog hero.
