(Dec. 11) - An Oklahoma City family is calling a beloved pit bull a hero after the dog took three bullets while fending off an intruder, KWTV reports.
Roberta Trawick said she was sitting in her living room when a man came through the front door, holding a gun. The family's pit bull, D-Boy, raced in from another room, ready to attack. The intruder then began shooting, hitting the dog three times before fleeing the home. D-Boy is back with his family, having recovered from his bullet wounds.
"I'm sorry my dog got shot, but I still got my family and we still got our dog," family member Angelic Shoemaker told KWTV.
Police have not caught the intruder.
