Heroic Dog Takes Two Bullets While Stopping 5 Men During V.i.o.l.e.n.t Home Invasion

This is a brave dog! A Bullmastiff mix named Legend lived up to his name after he saved his family from five armed men, who broke into their home and attacked them. Legend was protecting Damien Strickland, 25, and Mersadie Wells-Shahan, 19, when the lads forced their way into their Tampa, Florida home on Tuesday February 17, 2015.

According to the Brandon Patch, the “gentle giant” bit one assailant and successfully chased off the others, but not before being shot twice in the struggle. One bullet went into the side of Legend’s head, but luckily police arrived in time and Legend was rushed to the hospital. Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Melissa Kincheloe later visited Legend at the vets and told the Patch he’s expected to recover. He went home later that day to rest and recuperate. Not only did Legend keep his family safe, because of his brave actions, police located and arrested one man a brief time later. They were ready to identify the suspect after seeing he was trying to hide a dog bite! The man is being charged with attempted robbery, aggravated cruelty to animals (for hurting Legend) and assault on Damien Strickland. The four other men are still on the loose, but police said they expect to form other arrests soon. As for Legend, he’s a real hero in his owner’s eyes. Mersadie told Bay News 9, “That dog saved my life.”
