(Scroll down for video) An 11-year-old boy saved her sister from a pit bull attack, according to reports.

The young Boy’s legs are attached with stitches days after he fought two ferocious pit bulls attacking his 5-year-old sister on their way to school.

Maleik and Jalia Carr were walking to the bus stop Monday morning, from their home in Dublin, Georgia, where loose dogs escaped through a hole in a neighbor’s wire fence.

They began to attack Jalia, Maleik, 11, said. "So I ran up there and started kicking them away from her. That is when they bit me. I told Jalia to run away," he recalled.

As his sister fled, Maleik grabbed a plastic chair and tried to hit the dogs. He freed himself for enough time to jump over the fence and scramble home covered with bleeding wounds and bite marks. His older sister took him to a hospital.

"It hurt me to my soul when I saw these cuts," father Willie Carr said. "It was hard not to cry for him because he was already so strong, and I wanted him to remain strong," the father said.

Maleik’s mother is furious that the dogs were released. “I was hurt, scared and after all was said and done, I was angry,” Sherry Carr said.

Both parents are proud of their son who was so fast to save his sister. “It makes me very proud. It makes me very proud to have him in my house,” his mother said.

Charges are pending against the owners of the dogs.
