Pit bulls have a reputation for being aggressive and dangerous, and if they are treated badly, this reputation may very well be accurate. The majority of dog breeds are similar; it all depends on how well the owner nurtures their pet by ensuring that they feel comfortable.
The way a dog is raised by its owner determines everything; no dog is born bad.
Pit bulls may not be a topic on which everyone can agree, but this pit bull is undoubtedly a great hero in everyone’s eyes.
Remayah Hernandez, aged 5, was out biking with her sister when she unexpectedly came across Tank, the neighbor’s labrador.
Being the little dog lover that she is, the small girl didn’t think twice to try to catch its attention. All she wanted to do was pet it. But, the day was marred by blood and sorrow.
The dog attacked the girl right away, biting her in the face.
Remayah began yelling for assistance while visibly in fear. Her shouts roused not just her mother but also the family pit bull, Trigger, to action. He was out in the family back garden and suddenly appeared to oppose all he had been taught as a puppy.
In order to attack another dog, he had to leave the family’s backyard and leap the fence. When Trigger heard his 5-year-old owner screaming for help, he raced to her aid and attacked Tank, who was ultimately hurt.
Given the reputation of the breed, a pit bull attacking another dog typically causes a commotion in the community.
But in this instance, Trigger made the proper decision.
Tank was taken in by the animal control team at the police station, who ultimately had to euthanize him. The young child was transported by ambulance to the hospital where her wounds were attended to.
The family had saved money for a vacation to Disney World, but they had to use it to cover the costs of reconstructive surgery for their young daughter when she was bitten by the neighbor’s dog.
In order to raise money for the family, an online campaign was started at that time. Remayah was still able to visit Disney World thanks to our efforts, and she did! In the end, $1000 was raised to fund this young girl’s
The little girl was obviously terrified after the incident, but she was most appreciative of what her hero had done for her. Or “superhero,” as she now prefers to refer to him. Trigger was genuinely there for her when she needed him.
It is still unknown how the labrador was able to get out onto the street and walk around the neighborhood uninhibited while the neighbor was at work that day. The neighbor was astonished to le
arn what had occurred and assumed right once that there must be a piece of the puzzle missing.
Although he firmly believed that his dog was innocent, he was relieved to learn that the young girl next door was unharmed in the incident.
Everyone was grateful that Remayah had a speedy recovery following that horrible incident.
