Melissa Butt was enjoying a sunny Sunday afternoon outside with her two grandchildren who were playing in the backyard when she suddenly heard an alarming bark coming from her two pit bulls.

Slayer and Paco had spotted a copperhead snake dangerously close to their human babies, so they were trying to get it away from them.

The dogs kept barking and barking so seconds later, the snake struck, biting the dogs and injecting them with highly poisonous venom.

When the snake struck Paco, pit bull dog Slayer attacked back,  picking the snake up with his mouth, and killing it.

Slayer suffered deep wounds on his face and nose, while Paco was struck in the leg, but they were rushed to the hospital to get emergency veterinary care.

When they arrived at the hospital, in Brandon, Florida, they were in terrible shape:

“We need to get the anti-venom…quickly, in order for them to get a good prognosis. It is very, very painful,” Dr. Shelby Loos said.

“We give them medicine for pain and make them as comfortable as possible. But, we have to act fast.”

Fortunately, with donations from an animal rescue group, Frankie’s Friends, that’s exactly what happened, getting the life-saving treatment they needed so badly.

Melissa’s grandchildren, four-year-old Zayden and one-year-old Mallory, are alive because thanks to the two brave canines who stepped in right on time.

“I know my dogs are heroes and without a doubt saved the lives of my grandchildren. They are too small to have fought something off like that. If they had gotten bit I’m 100 percent sure they wouldn’t have survived.”

“Our family is beyond grateful for everyone that has helped us care for our heroes. We feel blessed that the dogs took the “bite” for the family instead of one of the kids and further blessed by the love, prayers, and support from all!!!”

Paco recovered faster, with lesser injuries, but Slayer was released from the hospital only after he was treated with several doses of antivenin. 

Now, they are both back home, and their family decided to do something and protect them:

“We knew when we moved here there would be the risk of alligators, bobcats, hawks, field mice and things of that nature. None of my research told me about venomous snakes,” Butt said. “My husband and I are both big researchers, do it yourselfers. Our boys are our boys and we’ve already started the process to make our yard a little less snake friendly.”

They totally deserve it, they are true heroes!

Pit bull BO and a twelve-year-old girl help save unconscious, drowning stray dog

A twelve-year-old girl helped rescue a stray dog from drowning after the neighbor’s pit bull dog alerted her about the animal in danger

Published

Destinee Billiot of Arabi, Louisiana, was outside when Bo, a neighbor’s pit bull, started to bark frantically in front of her, trying to get her attention.

She realized something must be wrong, so she started to follow him. Soon, she was standing in front of a disturbing sight – a stray dog was drowning in a nearby canal.

She ran home to her family for help, and a neighbor helped her get a rope around the unconscious dog’s head to keep it above water until more help arrived.

Eventually, Animal Control Officer Kyle Menant, with the assistance of others, was able to pull the drowning dog out of the water and bring it to safety.

He was later rushed to St. Bernard Animal Services in Violet and nicknamed “Lucky” because was indeed really fortunate to still be alive!

Word of Destinee’s and Bo’s heroic actions got back to Tia Torres, founder of Villalobos Rescue Center in New Orleans, who met with the little girl and congratulate her for her brave efforts to save the dog’s life.

Carolyn Penn-Martin, co-founder of Paws in the Park, is also a fan:

“I have always loved the Gandhi quote ‘the greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated’. I feel that is surely the case here in its simplest form. To know that a 12-year-old girl helped an animal from drowning shows that someone has raised her with impeccable morals for when she reaches adulthood. This story tugs at my heart!”

Pit Bull saw a man beating a woman and dragging her by the hair on the street. What happens next will amaze you!

Pit bull dog became the hero for a woman who was being attacked in the street by her violent separated husband

Pit bulls are often considered vicious and aggressive dogs, ready to attack anything and everything.

Although there are advocates that are trying to prove that any dog can become dangerous if it’s raised to be, media seems to have a tendency to publish only news about attacks and killings. And what do you expect, attack sells!

But this is not the case. A pit bull named Blitz owned by an Ottawa woman is described as a mild-mannered, sweet-tempered dog. He has never been aggressive and he is very protective with his human.

He is very friendly and he happily greets any visitors with sniffs and licks. When his mom opened the door, he heard screams and cries of distress coming from the street, so he rushed past his owner, to defend a woman being attacked by her separated husband.

An eye-witness told that the pit bull ran over to them and began furiously barking at the aggressor. At that moment, Steven Paul Schumacher, a disturbed husband, loosened his grip on his victim, who then ran into Blitz’s home for safety.

The protective pit bull firmly held his ground and he growled furiously at Steven just until the police arrived.

It didn’t take long to realize what was happening, since Steven was pacing outside Blitz’s home, carrying a knife in his pocket, so he was instantly taken into custody.

What Schumacher’s intentions were are still not known, but what is known is that a dog that many fear, saw fear, and became a hero!

Not only that Blitz saved the woman’s life, but he also helped the police to arrest Schumacher, who was wanted for a felony, home invasion, and domestic assault.

Blitz’s mom, who prefered to remain anonymous, shared her story hoping that it will help reduce the stigma and the stereotypes attached to the bully breed.

Please SHARE this amazing story to honor this brave pit bull hero!

Two brave Pit Bulls save a Chihuahua mix from the jaws of a coyote

Pit Bulls save a Chihuahua dog from an almost fatal Coyote attack. They are true heroes!

Published

Attacks from coyotes are becoming more and more common near cities, or in places where hunting is prohibited. In the wild, where they are often hunted and trapped, they are elusive, but in the urban areas, they can become aggressive sometimes.

Usually, they are spotted on the alleys or other open spaces, being attracted by open garbage or bird feeders. But this time, a coyote attacked and nearly killed a woman’s dog!

A young Chihuahua-Terrier mix named Buster was assaulted and taken by a wild coyote in the suburban town of Littleton.

“He woke me up at 6:30 to do his thing. I let him out and I came out with him,” said Jodi Robinette of Littleton. “And about a minute later, he screamed like I’ve never heard an animal scream. I instantly knew that an animal got him.”

At that point, Robinette started running after Buster and the coyote behind her home.

“And right when I came around the corner, the coyote had my dog in his mouth, shaking him as he was running, she said. “And then, I see the coyote at the very middle of this field drop my dog.”

Apparently, the neighbor’s pit bulls were going after the coyote to save the poor pup from the vicious abductor! They ran towards the coyote that probably realized he was outnumbered and released Buster. Then, he just ran off, scared by the dogs.

As for the pit bulls, they protected Buster under a bush, checking in he is ok.

“The pits followed my dog underneath a bush, guarding him, [They] lay next to him, licked him and protected him. They were circling him and sitting by him. Making sure he was all right,” said Robinette.

Robinette, who is a neurosurgery coordinator, quickly wrapped the gravely injured Chihuahua in a towel and rushed him to Columbine Animal Hospital where it was immediately treated for pain and scheduled for surgery.

But thanks to the brave pit bull dogs that quickly realized what happened, Buster is now on the road to recovery!

They were “guardian angels for her dog,” Dr. Bregitzer says, “disguised as pit bulls.”

Robinette is full of gratitude for the heroic pits, who stepped in quicker than she could ever have.
