Pit Bull Takes a Bullet To The Head for Owner During Home InvasionDanielle Sullivan
Some say that pit bulls are mean and vicious animals but anyone who knows and loves dogs know that it is all about how that dog was raised and treated. It’s not the breed. As far as breeds go, pit bulls are some of the most loving, loyal dogs in the world.
Just look at what Kilo, the pit bull, did for his owner.
When Justin Becker home was broken into, his pit bull, Kilo stood by his side and tried to protect Becker. It all began when the home invader, dressed and posing as a Fed Ex worker rang the bell. Becker answered the door and the suspect pushed his way inside.
The NY Daily News reports that 12-year-old Kilo didn’t just walk in to see what was happening, he sprinted in the room. That’s when 32-year-old Becker pushed the intruder to the ground trying to get him out of his apartment. The two men were struggling in the doorway of Becker’s apartment.
When Kilo stuck his head out the door, the intruder pulled the trigger three times. One of the shots hit Kilo. The bullet ricocheted off his skull and exited through his neck, according to NBCNewYork.com, and that is what helped him survive:
“This is like, one in a million,” Dr. Greg Panarello, whose veterinary clinic operated on Kilo. “He’s very lucky.”
Becker knows that his pit bull saved his life: “He’s a hero. He saved my life. He went to protect me and he did his job.”
