Dogs have been guardians and protectors of humans for thousands of years.
Most are protecting their owners from some harm but every once in a while that protection just seems to come out of nowhere. Such was the case in Argentina recently.
A young 12 year old girl was walking alone around 9:30 am on June 23rd on her way to her aunt's house in the barrio Costa Azuld.
She was abducted by an assailant who grabbed her and covered her mouth so she couldn't scream. He then dragged her to a secluded location where his intention was to rape her.
The young girl began to scream for help but no one was near to help her. Or so she thought. Her screams had caught the attention of five stray dogs that were nearby. The dogs rushed to her side and immediately began to bite the unknown man who was attacking her.
This enabled the young girl to break free from him and run to a neighbor's home. The neighbor quickly called the police who came and reunited the girl with her parents. The police were unable to locate the attacker and the five guardian angel dogs had disappeared.
People often assume that animals aren’t capable of recognizing human peril, but the truth of the matter is that they’re quite emotional. It’s sad to see how poorly humans treat animals when they can be the kindest, best companions to us. They trust, they care for us, they make us smile and they help us in time of need and danger.
