One night, Robert was in his garage when four strangers attacked him. They hit him, causing a black eye, and tried to steal his car.
They asked for the keys, and Robert said they were inside. They didn’t realize there were other surprises waiting for them in the garage.
All of a sudden, the two pit bulls protected their owner by barking and scaring the attackers away. Robert said, “They made the attackers go away. My dogs hurried into the garage and stayed close to me.”
“They stood there barking, showing that they wouldn’t let anyone harm me. The four people ran away.”
Robert explains that the dogs are actually very gentle and not aggressive, even though their breed is known for it. However, they will quickly protect their loved one if they’re in danger.
