A rescսe pit bսll defends his family against a burglar and hօlds him until the pօlice arrive

Sometimes when you save a dog, it returns the favor.

Rescue dogs can be among the most loyal and protective animals, always ready to intervene to defend their loved ones.

This was the case recently, after a rescue pit bull protected his family by holding a burglar, helping police make an arrest.

Leroy Rucker, of Altoona, Pennsylvania, is the owner of a 9-year-old pit bull named Spuds. On March 24, the man and dog were hanging around the house watching TV together when an unwanted visitor entered the house.

When the alleged burglar entered their home, Leroy and his trusty dog Spuds took action, according to WJAC.
As Leroy and his family tried to restrain the burglar, Spuds instinctively mobilized to help protect his loved ones.

«He was hanging out with Dad. That is all I can say. He sees me fighting, he wants to fight,» Leroy told WJAC.

The sight of the protective pit bull apparently intimidated the intruder, allowing them to hold him for 20 minutes until police arrived to make an arrest: «He listened better when the dog was there, you know what I mean,» Leroy said.

Justice has been done, all thanks to this fiercely protective pit bull.

«Spuds is very protective of his family. He knows good and evil, and that’s what dogs are supposed to do,» local garbage collector Steven Rightenour told WJAC.

The owner says Spuds’ actions show how much he loves his family.
