Hero Pit Bull Guards Lost Child Until He’s Found, Is A Very Good Boy

When officers from the Suwannee Correctional Institution got a call that a three-year-old boy was missing, they feared he worst. Luckily, because of the boy’s loyal pit bull dog, they were able to find him—unhurt—relatively quickly. Now, this good pupper is being called a hero for protecting his human.

Officers and a K9 unit began searching for the missing boy until they received a call from a neighbor saying that he had found the child—although the boy’s protective canine friend was not allowing strangers near them.

Police said the family is doing well and that the child was not hurt in the ordeal.

“It was such a good ending to something that could have been tragic,” Sheriff Sam St. John said. “We’re all the time putting out tragic news. I’m telling you, it feels so good, so good to tell a good story.”

Pit bull-type dogs have such an undeserved bad reputation, so hopefully this story will encourage people to view these goofy four-legged friends as loyal friends and guardians.
