Most people think of pit bull dogs as bad, but this is not always the case. Recently a pit bull named Angel saved a woman and her little boy from an attack by a man welding a knife.
Pit bulls are supposedly all bad, horrible dogs that kill people. Some downs even ban them and some insurance companies won’t insure households that own one. However, there are positive examples of pit bulls and it really depends on how the animal is raised. This story is a perfect example.
In Port Charlotte, Fla. a woman and her son were leaving a playground when they were jumped by a man with a knife. He told them not to move and was about to rob her or worse when suddenly from out of nowhere a stray pit bull rushed at the man, growling and snarling to protect the woman and her son.
Even though Angel was a stray, he somehow knew this woman and her young toddler were in danger and jumped in to go after the man. According to the animal control person who showed up later, there was no doubt at all that the animal was trying to protect the two.
The man ran and when the woman and her son got to their car, the dog hopped in with them as if he belonged to them and wanted to go home. The dog didn’t have tags, but animal control thought he may belong to someone and took him to the shelter. However, if no owners appear, the woman and her son are going to adopt the dog, which they are already calling Angel because that is what he was to them on that fateful day.
