Today I ran across another story of a heroic pit bull that warmed my heart and brought tears to my eyes. This story is about Lilly, an 8-year-old pit bull rescued by Boston police officer David Lanteigne to become a therapy dog for his ailing mother.

Her owner passed out on some railroad tracks near her home at about midnight on the evening of May 4th.
