Pit Bull Protects Animal Shelter Workers From Aggressive Dogs


Texarkana, AR - A Texarkana pit bull is being hailed a hero after protecting shelter workers from two aggressive dogs.

The attack happened on Monday when the owner of two female pit bulls surrendered the dogs to the Animal Care and Adoption Center.

Shelter officials say two workers were securing the dogs in a fenced area, when they got out and attacked the men leaving bite marks and bruises on one of them.

That's when another male pit bull named "Hank" got out of his kennel and rushed the dogs.

Hank received injuries to his throat and had to have stitches.

"He has been taken in by the Faithful Friend's Rescue Group. They're looking for support on getting him vetted and looking for a foster home and eventually a permanent home," said Jennifer Jones, Interim Director, Animal Care and Adoption Center.

Hank is six years old and had been abused before coming to the shelter.

He was actually on the list to be euthanized.

Hank will now face six months of rehab before he can be adopted.

The two female pit bulls were put down to be tested for rabies.

The test was negative.
