Stray Dog Saves Woman and Toddler

From a ZooToo story posted earlier this month:

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. — The wandering 65-pound Pit Bull mix might have seemed menacing to some passerby, but one woman will always remember him as her “guardian angel.”

The dog, which authorities think is lost and not a stray, successfully thwarted a robbery attack on a mother and her 2-year-old son, who were held at knifepoint Monday afternoon.

OMG! This fellow’s not only handsome – he’s a four-legged Guardian Angel!

“I don’t think the dog physically attacked the man, but he went at him and was showing signs of aggression, just baring his teeth and growling and barking. It was clear he was trying to defend this woman,” Animal Control Lt. Brian Jones told Pet Pulse.

“I don’t know what this man’s intentions were, but it is very possible this dog saved her life.”

The exceptional part of the story, Jones said, is that the dog had never met or even seen the people it quickly jumped to defend.

Because he was fit, healthy and well-mannered; animal control workers and shelter staff who are caring for the dog believe he was lost rather than abandoned. The woman that he rescued has said that she plans to adopt “Angel” if his owner doesn’t come forward to claim him.
