"The Guardian Angel" is what a stray medium sized pit bull is being called. This "tough" looking pit bull stray has become a hero in Port Charlotte, Florida.
Either lost or abandoned, this pitty prevented an attack, saving a a woman and her child from a knife-wielding man. The woman, Angela, was with her child leaving the playground when the man approached with knife in hand instructing her to not to make any noise or move at all.
That's when the stray pit bull appeared out of nowhere running at the man and sending him off. Animal Control Lt. Brian Jones told Pet Pulse, "I don't think the dog physically attacked the man, but he went at him and was showing signs of aggression, just baring his teeth and growling and barking. It was clear he was trying to defend this woman."
The dog, now named "Angel" is residing at the local animal shelter and if not claimed by an owner, will be adopted by Angela.
"You hear about family dogs protecting their owners, but this dog had nothing to do with this woman or her kid," Jones said. "He was like her guardian angel." Thanks to a sweet soul, this pit bull, two lives were saved! Moreover, this special stray gave a story for all to share; the true nature of a pit bull dog.
