Dogs are truly amazing. They are man’s best friend, they are fun, loyal, respectful and just a joy to have as a pet. Not only that, they are willing to protect their owner, even if it means putting their life in danger.
Thank goodness this one very lucky little girl in Prince William County, Virginia, had her faithful dog by her side during one of the scariest moments of her life, and he wasn’t about to let anything happen to her!
The 10-year-old girl was taking her dog for a walk around 3:50 p.m. on Friday when a man approached her and grabbed her arm. He tried to abduct the little girl, but that’s when her dog stepped in.
As soon as the man grabbed her, the dog bit him, causing him to drop her arm and run away. Thankfully, the girl was not injured.
Police are still searching for the suspect. He has been described as a Hispanic male in his late teens or early 20s, between 5’3″ and 5’6″, weighing about 145 pounds with short, dark hair and a goatee.
Anyone with information on the suspect is being urged to contact the Prince William County Police Department at (703) 792-6500.
Had this girl’s dog not been with her that day, who knows what could have happened. One thing is for sure – had he not been by her side, this story would have had a much different ending.
