Around the Intarwebz

A woman walking her Beagle was attacked at knife-point and dragged back to her home (no mention of what happens to the Beagle). The man assaulted her. As he was about to rape her, the woman's other dog, a Pit Bull named Purple, ran into the room and bit the man. She was able to escape. Authorities are looking for the suspect.

Two years ago, a homeless man and his dog were attacked by thugs. The man was stabbed multiple times. The dog, a Pit bull, came to his defense, biting the attackers. She was stabbed as well. Tragically, the man died and the dog was left with multiple injuries. She ended up at a shelter and eventually at a no-kill sanctuary where she remained...until recently. Samantha has now been adopted!
