Benny, a three-year-old Pit Bull, proved himself to be the best kind of house guest.On December 16, Nick Franco and Kari MacDonald, accompanied by Benny, who they were fostering at the time, came back from doing their grocery shopping, reportsThe Dodo. After barely making it into the garage, the dog proved to be extremely agitated, pulling on his leash in an unusual manner.
Nick and Kari didn't think anything of it at the time. But upon entering the house, they realized that their house had been robbed: their things were thrown around everywhere and furniture had been turned upside-down. Worse, Nick and Kari realized that the burglar was still in their house. Benny wouldn't stop pacing, ready to attack to protect his family. Nick explained that he yelled at the intruder to leave the house immediately before the dog comes upstairs to get him.
A few seconds later, Nick and Kari heard the windows open, before the criminals fled empty-handed, terrified of the dog.Benny isn't a Pit Bull like others. The animal had a traumatizing start to life, in a nightmare dog fighting ring, before being saved by the Pennsylvania SCPA. He was placed with Nick and Kari while waiting for a forever family, but his courageous act completely changed the situation.
