GEORGETOWN, Texas (FOX 7 Austin) - It's not every day you see a WWE wrestler getting chomped by a pair of K9s.
WWE wrestler and WilCo honorary deputy Dustin "Goldust" Rhodes has a soft spot for children. So to benefit the B.I.G. Love Cancer Care Center, he was challenged to take some major bites from Williamson County Sheriff's Office K9 Nemo and Kato.
“One of the officers over there, he did a bite suit, but he's already a law enforcement officer. So I said I wonder if they'd let me do that. I wonder what it feels like, scared to death,” said Rhodes.
“We just did a standard bite scenario where Dustin takes off running and I release the dogs, they bite him and take him to the ground,” said Cato’s handler, Deputy Charles Duvall.
Despite wearing a bite suit with six inches depth, Rhodes still had some bruises.
“Nemo, if you remember a few months back I got him released from jail. Sheriff Chody put him in jail for stealing all the toys in his office and playing all over his couches and stuff, which was wrong. So I went to Governor Abbott and we got some stuff done and got him out of jail. And here he is with K9 Kato and they are both tearing me apart,” he said.
By sharing events like this on his social media pages, Rhodes hopes he can raise $5,000 for B.I.G. Love, which serves children in hospitals in the Houston area and Austin. “Kids are important to me and it's unfair that they go through this. If we can lead them in the right direction, take good care of them, then they are going to turn out okay, said Rhodes.
