These days you often hear only bad things about pit bulls and the negative reputation attached to the breed follows them everywhere. People automatically assume that all pit bull dogs are violent, unpredictable, and aggressive animals. This type of mindset is wrong, not every pit bull is dangerous or waiting to snap, and there are more good ones than bad. If you treat dogs with love, compassion, respect, and train them right, they can make loving and loyal family pets.
One family knows this well. Their two pit bulls came to the rescue when they sensed danger and stopped a pair of criminals in their tracks, literally. Nayeli Garzon-Jimenez was home alone watching her 3 month old baby when a man and a woman suddenly broke into her house. Nayeli was on the phone with her husband Adolfo Angeles-Morales at the time, and told him someone was in the house. He stayed on the line and listened helplessly as the drama unfolded on the other end.
The man who broke in was armed with a gun. He pointed it at Nayeli and demanded money, or else they would take her baby. She told them she had no money on her at the moment and that is when the woman grabbed her baby out of her arms. Nayeli desperately tried to get her infant back and fought with the woman, grabbing her shirt and holding her back, but the man hit her hard on the head with the gun and the woman go away. She ran with the baby towards the rear door in an attempt to escape through the backyard, and bumped straight into the family’s 2 pit bulls.
Alerted to the danger of the quickly unfolding situation, and likely sensing the baby snatchers evilness, the dogs stood firmly in the way and blocked the woman’s path. If she was going to try and get through the back yard she’d have to go through them first. Knowing she was no match for two strong dogs who could sense her fear, the woman turned and fled towards the front door instead. Thankfully, in her panic and blind attempt to escape from the pit bulls, she tossed the poor innocent infant back to her mother on the way out.
When it was all over, Nayeli was left battered and bruised from being hit with the gun. However, her baby was unharmed and safely back where she belonged, in her mother’s loving arms. This story could have had a very different, and much sadder, ending if not for the families two alert pit bulls. They selflessly stood up to the criminals, defended both their family and home, and stopped the would be baby snatchers from getting away with a heinous crime. The dogs definitely saved the day!
