Amazing Pit Bull Saves Little Girl From Dog Attack

We’ve all heard the horror stories of pit bulls snapping and attacking unsuspecting strangers. As such, the whole breed gets a bad rap, and many people are downright terrified of them. As the San Francisco Globe shares, this pit bull from Florida has shown that there are some good eggs in the bunch.

The pit bull saved a five-year-old girl’s life. Remayah Hernandez was playing outside with her friend, and they came across a Labrador retriever mix. She tried to pet it, and the dog went off. The girl was bitten in the face and in danger of much worse.

"He bit me in the face, and I went to the hospital because I got bitten by the lips," she recalls.

That’s when her family pet got wind of what was going on. Trigger was doing his thing in the backyard when he saw what was happening to his little friend. All of a sudden, he leapt over the fence and laid the smack down on the other dog. The other pup didn’t stand a chance, and Trigger killed it on the spot. The Lab’s owner is completely stunned by the turn of events.

"I sincerely believe inside of me that my dog is innocent. It's very unfortunate what happened, but I'm more worried about the girl, now that my dog is gone," she said.

Remayah was seriously messed up as a result of the attack, and the family had to use their vacation funds to get her some much-needed plastic surgery. That led to a GoFundMe page being created in the family name, and they were fortunate enough to be showered with attention and affection as a result of their scary tale.

No word on what Trigger is up to these days, but you can bet word has made the rounds on the streets. Other pups would be wise not to mess with his little friend, as there’s no way that’s happening on his watch.
