Stray dog risks his life to save a woman from a knife wielding attacker.
Over the last decade or so, pit bulls have gotten a real bad reputation from the media. They’ve been portrayed as aggressive, merciless, and even blood thirsty. However, as any long term pit bull owner will tell you, this isn’t a fair assessment of the entire breed.
When properly trained, pit bulls can be some of the amazing dogs in the world. In fact, according to animal planet, they’re so great with children that pit bulls are commonly viewed as nanny dogs in the UK.
In the video below, you’re going to see an example of just how amazing pit bulls can be. The pit bull’s name is Hero and he is making national headlines for saving a stranger’s life.
Hero, who was a stray at the time, was walking down the streets of Knoxville, Tennessee. He stumbled upon a woman being attacked by a knife wielding man. Hero immediately lunged at the man in order to save the woman.
Hero was stabbed five times during the encounter. Fortunately, after several surgeries, veterinarians were able to save his life.
