Dog Saves His Person from Armed Robbers

Max gets shot but chases them away

StubbyDog Staff Report

When armed robbers attacked his person, Max the dog leaped to the defense – and took the bullet!

Osmar Persisco of Garibaldi, Brazil, was parking his truck near Max’s favorite dog-walking field when two armed robbers came up to him and demanded the keys to his vehicle.

Persisco refused and the thieves opened fire, grazing his forehead with a bullet.

That’s when Max stepped in.

“He saw the blood and was furious,” Persisco told Brazilian newspaper Globo. “He left like a rocket to attack the thieves. One of them ran away, but Max dominated the other one. To defend himself, the thief ended up shooting the dog. Max thwarted the assault and saved my life.”

Max was hit twice in his chest and once in his leg, but by then he had scared off the thieves.

Persisco rushed the heroic pet he had adopted three years earlier to his local vet. Max is expected to make a full recovery.

“If I didn’t have my dog around, they would have killed me,” Persisco told the paper. “He’s my hero.”
