Recently Rescued Pitbull Stops Car Thief
A recently rescued dog kept a car thief from stealing a vehicle over the weekend. According to Washington's KomoNews.com, a pitbull named Victor jumped at the man while he attempted to steal Amber Melena's ride. Melena -- who had adopted Victor from a life of brutal beatings and dog fights -- was returning from the grocery store Friday night when the suspect approached her at her car. Fortunately, Victor was present and scared the man off with a loud bark. Kirkland police were able to arrest the man a short time later, while Melena was happy that she had her three-year-old bodyguard at her side. She states, quote, "I think he might have given me a second chance. He's definitely my hero."
