Contrary to popular belief, not all pit bulls are aggressive. In fact, this heroic pit bull saved a 9-year-old boy from drowning.
In Moama, New South Wales, Australia, a mother brought her 2 children, a 5-year-old and a 9-year old, to the Murray River. Instead of playing with them as a mother should, she tried to drown them!
She reportedly had psychological problems and earlier told her friends, “I have to drown my babies.”
She first brought the elder one to the water to drown him. The boy struggled to get loose from his lunatic mother. Luckily, the family pit bull was there to save him.
In the middle of the action, the mother was distracted by her younger son who was screaming for help. So she left the elder one and went to get her younger child.
The pit bull wasted no time and rushed to the river to save the 9-year-old boy. He had to bite his arm to drag him out of the water. Fortunately, he was able to save him.
The pit bull also bit the disturbed mother in an attempt to save the younger one.
Due to animal control policies, the authorities were initially convinced that the dog attacked the boy and planned to put him down.
However, a petition was started to save the dog which quickly garnered 50,000 signatures. With this, the authorities decided to spare the pit bull’s life.
Unfortunately, the younger son did not survive his disturbed mother’s attack and his body was recovered from the river, leaving many heartbroken.
The mother was taken into police custody and will be charged with murder and attempted murder.
As of this writing, the story has already garnered 28,000 views on Youtube. Many netizens expressed their anger against the mother but were amazed by the dog’s heroism.
