“My Guardian Angel”. This is what the mother (Angela) and her son are calling the Pit Bull who saved their life Monday afternoon. When they were leaving the playground, a man approached Angela and her 2 year old son. He told her to not make any noise or sudden movements with a knife. From out of nowhere this 65-lb Pit Bull comes to the rescue. Angela said he charged the man, showing his teeth and snarling.
“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.
The Pit Bull character is really tested in this event. This Pit Bull had never met this woman and her child before in his life, yet he was so quick to charge at this man threatening them. To put his life in danger for a complete stranger needing help. After the Pit Bull chased the attacker away, the mom and son quickly try to leave in their car. Before they knew it, the Pit Bull hopped in the back seat, and they just waited for police to show up. Animal control showed up and took the Pit Bull to the shelter. They said if the Pit Bull is not claimed in 5 days, Angela will adopt him, with plans on naming the dog Angel.
