Dog Takes a Bullet to Save His Owner's Life During Robbery

Hero 15

pit bullMost family pets are extremely loyal, but one dog took his extreme love for his owner to a whole new level by taking a bullet to the head in order to save him from an intruder who was trying to rob the home. Isn't that incredible?

The brave pit bull named Kilo leaped into action when a robber disguised as a FedEx deliveryman showed up at the door and pushed his way into the home. Kilo's owner jumped on top of the man and had him jammed between the door, and he likely would have been shot himself if Kilo hadn't stepped in and taken the bullet for him. After poor Kilo was shot, the robber got scared and took off. And all his devastated owner could do was rush him to the vet and pray that he would survive. Can you imagine how gut-wrenching that car ride must have been?

In a weird twist of fate, it turns out the bullet didn't go through the dog's skull, so minus some swelling (and probably a very bad headache), Kilo is going to be just fine. His owner was no doubt relieved, and I'm sure he was so thrilled to be able to properly thank his little hero for saving his life. Plenty of extra doggie treats and hugs were certainly in order, that's for sure.

This story is such an amazing example of the emotional connection and intense bond that people can have with their pets. We should never underestimate just how capable animals are of love, loyalty, and devotion. Dogs are nicknamed "man's best friend" for a reason, and Kilo is living proof of that.

Has your pet ever protected you or kept you out of harm's way?

Hmm...a Pit named Kilo, and a home robbery that was clearly a setup, I am guessing this dog was shot over drugs, or drug money. If that is the case it should have been the owner! Poor doggy, I am glad he's ok!

Anyone that hates on Pits needs to hate the owner!

Aww. I actually have a pitbull and I've raised her from 8 weeks old. She is very protective of me. I feel safe with her by my side. I know if anything like this ever happened, she would do the same to protect me.

Pit bulls, American Staffordshire Terriers, and other pit type dogs are the best dogs ever!

Thank you for doing a pro pit story, so many are quite the opposite and it is so sad usually because they are amazing family dogs.

I have a 3 year old pit and he was a rescue someone dumped him and left him to fend for himself in the country. He is such a good boy and extremely loyal and gentle with my kids.

He is a hell of a good guard dog too, I have no doubt he would do the same if put in that situation.
