A Pit Bull that was wandering the streets of Baldwin, Georgia recently became a hero when he intervened on behalf of a woman who was being attacked by a man with a knife. Unfortunately, the dog was stabbed five times as a result. Luckily, Officer Daniel Seeley and Sgt. Timothy Clay arrived in time to find the dog on the ground, bleeding.
According to Sgt. Clay’s wife, her husband and a fellow officer were on duty when they received a call regarding a domestic dispute. Upon arrival, the caller reported a heated argument with a man who was then attacked by their dog while trying to rescue her. Shockingly, the man responded by repeatedly stabbing the dog.
The police officers realized that they required the brave dog’s aid and transported it to an animal hospital. Officer Clay shared with ABC7 that they couldn’t leave the dog to suffer and perish. Given all that the dog had gone through, they thought it was necessary to offer some assistance. The dog, who is now known as “Hero,” was on the brink of death because of blood loss when the authorities intervened. However, the quick action of the doctors saved him. Carla Welch from Fighting for the Bullys came forward to support the police after learning about Hero’s story.
Carla Welch, along with other animal rescuers, joined forces to help Hero and raise funds for his medical needs, as he was found to have heart worm. Since the authorities were unable to keep him, Carla came to get the dog and bring him to her home in Tennessee. According to Carla, Hero displayed great strength and courage despite being a stranger to the people who rescued him.
The Pit Bull, who is seven years old, is characterized as easygoing and gentle by the person who put him up for adoption. Since then, she has received numerous inquiries and applications that have overwhelmed her. She expressed her excitement on Facebook using the phrase “OMG!” and stated that she is currently feeling emotional. Hero’s bravery has surely earned him a better future, and we can only hope that he finds a permanent home that he deserves.
After being up for adoption for quite some time, Hero has finally found his forever home with the Simpson family in Tennessee. Sara and David Simpson welcomed the brave dog into their household, where he has already adapted well to living with their two other dogs. According to Sara’s Facebook post, they feel incredibly fortunate to have Hero join their family and are delighted with how smoothly the transition has been going.
