A pit bull dubbed “Hero,” lived up to his newfound name when he put himself between a knife-wielding man and a woman who was being attacked in Baldwin, Georgia. According to Sunday’s ABC 7 News, the stray dog lunged at the attacker and was seriously injured in the process.

The amazing act of bravery was witnessed by two police officers.  Officer Timothy Clay, one of the officers who saw the dog’s brave act, recounted the scene, reported International Business Times:

“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.”

The police officers rushed the injured dog to a veterinarian for emergency surgery – twice he nearly died during the life-saving procedure. The amazing story involves many heroes…the brave dog, the compassionate police officers who rushed Hero to a veterinarian, and the rescue group which started a fundraising campaign to cover Hero’s veterinary expenses.13775456_10207268452329950_8728423376954530296_n

Fighting for the Bully’s Pit Bull Rescue raised funds for Hero, and took him in. Today, the rescue agency is hoping to find Hero a loving new home where he will be appreciated and loved.

    So good on two counts; it happened in the south and Hero was saved by two police officers.
    Hope these two officers speak up for pit bulls……
