Travis singer Fran Healy rushed to hospital after he's mauled by a sausage dog in Hollywood

TRAVIS frontman Fran Healy has been hospitalised after being attacked by a sausage dog.

The singer, 48, dashed to help the pooch after it ended up in the middle of a busy road during a three-car crash near his home in Los Angeles.

But the Dachshund bit him as he tried to rescue it, leaving blood pouring from his hand.

Worried neighbours called an ambulance although he eventually drove himself to a nearby hospital where he was treated.

The unharmed dog was later captured and returned to its owners.

He wrote on Twitter: “I was driving down my hill and as I rounded a corner there were three cars jackknifed and from the middle of the chaos ran a Dachshund.

“So I jumped out and chased it up the hill. Cars bomb down our hill and it would have been toast. So I tried to pick it up and it mauled the s*** out my left hand.

“I held on, hoping to chuck it into our porch but then I slipped and it bolted off, leaving me p***ing blood all over the shop. So much blood. Then all the neighbours came out and one of them called an ambulance.

“I ran into the house and poured alcohol over the wounds, then I came out but it wasn’t an ambulance it was a massive fire engine.

“And I have to say, five Calvin Klein models got out and then I’m telling them about the dachshund and they suggested urgent care.

“By this time there was about 20 cars waiting to pass, I’m p***ing blood.

“Anyways I drove to Urgent Care on Selma and they cleaned me up good and now I’m here and my finger is patched up and bloody sore.”

The singer, best known for his hits Sing and Why Does It Always Rain On Me? posted images of his unlikely injury on Twitter.

He added: “The dog is fine. Was cornered at the bottom of the hill and the owner, who lives in Stevie Nicks old house, was reunited.”
