True Loyalty: Hero Dog Is Shot Four Times But Manages To Save Teen Owner
March 22, 2019
Once a German shepherd was shot multiple times and severely beaten as it did all it could to protect its 16-year-old owner, Javier, from two men who broke into their home in Des Moines, Washington.
The burglars came in the middle of the night
Javier’s aunt, Susy Cadena, said he initially called 911 and tried to hide in the closet with his beloved dog, but Rex was determined to protect him and rushed downstairs to where the intruders were. She wrote:
Both of the burglars struggled and beat him up with whatever they could. Rex stormed back to the upstairs floor all beat up and bloody from the beating to check on his master who was still hiding in the closet.
As they entered the room where my nephew was hiding in the closet, Rex came out with the little strength he had left in him and threw himself at them as he knew my nephew was in danger.
