A hero dog managed to protect the woman who was being attacked by a knife-wielding attacker. Though the stray dog managed to ensure the woman was saved by intervening during the assault, he was seriously injured after the assailant targeted it instead. The pit bull sustained at least five puncture wounds from the sharp knife. Officers, who rescued the dog, are now looking for a home after he recovers from the deadly attack, reported International Business Times.
While the details about the case or those involved in the same haven’t been made public, Officer Timothy Clay, who was one of the officers who responded to the call, said the following.
“The dog… lunged toward the male and the male came out with the knife and stabbed the dog several times. I don’t think we could have let that dog suffer and die. We felt like we needed to get that dog some help after what it had been through.”
