Pit Bull Takes Bullet for Family

“If it wasn’t for his hard head, he wouldn’t be here,” the vet told Roberta Trawick, owner of the lifesaving pit bull, D-Boy. Trawick was sitting on the couch of her Oklahoma City home in early December, when a man broke in through the front door. He pointed a gun in her face and ordered her to get on the floor.

Though Trawick was paralyzed by terror, her loyal pit bull immediately sprang into action, attacking the armed assailant. The man began shooting at the dog, hitting him with three bullets, one of which entered and exited his head. But the dog kept defending his family, ultimately scaring the gunman off. Despite what looked like lethal wounds, D-Boy survived the gunshots to the tearful delight of the Trawicks, and is in very healthy condition.
