Here we have a stray Pit Bull who is a total hero as the dog rescues a woman from a knife attack! The Pit knows something is not right and risks his own life to save hers.

This all went down in Baldwin, Georgia where a man and woman were arguing. The dog got between the two and the knife wielding man ended up stabbing the dog five times, but enabled the altercation to come to an end and for the woman to find safety. It was Sgt. Timothy Clay and officer Daniel Seeley who then arrived and saw the hero dog on the street, bleeding out.

Heres what the officers wife said happened:

While on duty my husband and another officer answered a domestic call. When they arrived they were told by the woman who called that she was arguing with a man and this dog attacked him trying to save her. The man proceeded to stab the dog multiple times.

The dog was rushed to an animal hospital as quickly as possible by the officers.

I dont 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, said Officer Clay.

Indeed they ended up naming the dog Hero. Thankfully the vets were able to save him just in the nick of time as the dog was dying from blood loss. Carla Welch of Fighting For The Bullys, heard about what happened and stepped in to help out.

Other animal rescuers also lent their hand and helped to raise funds for the dogs medical care. Carla would end up coming back to temporarily adapt the dog.

Heres what Carla had to say about this amazing dog: I thought he was very courageous and brave. He was totally a stranger to these people.

The 7-year-old Pit Bull is actually a laid back fella and enjoys the company of people. She has put him up for adoption and is receiving tons of inquiries.

OMG! Our Inbox is full of inquiries and applications for Hero. I am very overwhelmed with emotion right now!

Hero will for sure have a loving forever home in no time.
