Dog Prevents Kidnapping

Pit Bull Who Saved Boy

Another great story about a dog saving a child! But what’s the pit bull’s name? Sheesh! He goes to all the trouble to save the kid and the news can’t even report his name! Anyway, this comes to us from 9News.com and was barked in to the Pet-O-Nomics Group by Jade Snoop.

in Larimer County are searching for the man who tried to take the 9-year-old boy from his backyard in the 3000 block of West Laporte Avenue.

At around 7:30 p.m. the boy’s father, Wayne Meyers, heard the family pit bull barking loudly while he was working on his car in the front yard.

Meyers says he ran to the backyard where his sons were playing.

He told 9NEWS, “He grabbed (my son) by the mouth, I guess – the mouth and shoulder and kind of bent him over the fence. He grabbed (my son) by the side, picked him up by the shoulders. There’s marks on his shoulders, marks on his wrist.”

Meyers says their dog scared the man off. By the time he got to the backyard, the perpetrator was fleeing but he was able to catch a glimpse of him.
