There is no such thing as a bad dog, maybe just bad owners who fail to teach their furry pets the right behavior. When a dog is mistreated, it’s not unusual for them to turn aggressive, but that again, isn’t the dog’s fault.
Out of all dog breeds out there, Pit Bulls are considered to be most vicious. Their bad reputation is a result of humans treatment towards them. They have been used for dog frights for so long that they now stand for aggression. But the Pit bull from this story proves this common believe to be completely wrong by stepping in for a young boy and saving his life.
The story was shared by a woman named Stacie Rae English, the sister of a Pit Bull owner named Hurley.
Writing for Love what Matters, Stacie explained that her brother Shelby was walking Hurley at around 10 pm and let him off the leash so that he could run around when they heard a young boy screaming so Hurley took off after the scream.
“With my brother close behind, he saw Hurley grab a copper head snake away from the little boy and fling it around, later found out he had killed it. The little boy ran to his mothers vehicle and drove off so fast that my brother was unable to find out any information on the little boy. (We are assuming because they left so fast that he was bitten and being rushed to the ER) My brother then went on to call animal control and the Highland Village Cops showed up to check out the scene,” Stacie wrote.
“They asked to take a look at Hurley to see if he was bitten. To my brothers surprise, he was bleeding, had a swollen neck and foaming from his mouth. Sure enough, they found two puncture wounds in his upper lip. Shelby rushed Hurley to Denton Animal Emergency Hospital where he stayed the night so they could check his blood clotting ability multiple times through out the night.”
Luckily, Hurley was sent home and is doing fine, except his face is still swollen.
“It was later discovered the little boy had come across a copper head nest and hopefully Hurley prevented him from getting bitten, or at least getting bitten multiple times. We are still trying to find out who the little boy is and make sure he is okay. Here’s our hero pit bull. I’d like for his story to get around for those who judge his breed.”
We are glad everything turned out for the best for both Hurley and the boy he saved.
