More good press.

I apoligize if this was already posted at some point as it happened awhile ago but it is some more good press about an APBT even though the dog was a mixed APBT.

Stray Pit Bull Saves Woman, Child From Attacker

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. — The wandering 65-pound Pit Bull mix might have seemed menacing to some passerby, but one woman will always remember him as her “guardian angel.” The dog, which authorities think is lost and not a stray, successfully thwarted a robbery attack on a mother and her 2-year-old son, who were held at knifepoint Monday afternoon.
The Florida woman, who has been identified by authorities simply as “Angela,” was leaving a playground with her toddler son in Port Charlotte when a man approached her in the parking lot with a knife and told her not to make any noise or sudden movements.
Angela didn’t have to do either to protect herself and her child — a dog mysteriously ran to the scene and charged the man, who quickly fled.


“I don’t think the dog physically attacked the man, but he went at him and was showing signs of aggression, just baring his teeth and growling and barking. It was clear he was trying to defend this woman,” Animal Control Lt. Brian Jones told Pet Pulse.
“I don’t know what this man’s intentions were, but it is very possible this dog saved her life.”
The exceptional part of the story, Jones said, is that the dog had never met or even seen the people it quickly jumped to defend.
“You hear about family dogs protecting their owners, but this dog had nothing to do with this woman or her kid,” Jones said. “He was like her guardian angel.”
After the alleged thief ran away, Angela quickly placed her son, Jordan, in the car and tried to drive off. Before she could, though, the dog jumped into her backseat, waiting with her for the police and animal control officers to arrive at the scene.
The dog was transported to a local shelter and if his owners don’t step forward within five days, Jones said, Angela and her family plan to adopt the savior she named “Angel.”
Animal control officers and shelter workers believe Angel is lost, and not a stray, because of his good health, sturdy weight and mild temperament.
“It’s funny, that someone’s irresponsibility could have saved someone’s life,” Jones said of Angel’s possible owners.
For Angela, it doesn’t matter where the dog came from, just that he was there when she needed him most.
“I don’t know what his [the thief's] intentions were — I don’t know why he did it, but I’m glad that — we call him Angel — I’m glad that Angel showed up because I don’t know what would have happened,” Angela told NBC2 News.

Great story bearsxx. The dog didn't look mixed to me...media taking half the credit from an APBT, IMO. They just knew they couldn't call it something else. Other thing is, whatever this woman's idea of the APBT was, I'm sure it's forever changed. It just goes to show that many guardians and defenders of the innocent in our country are often unknown, and can appear when least expected. And they can even come in the form of an unknown APBT

Now if this had been about an APBT bitting or going after someone the media most likely would have called the dog a pit bull not a mixed.

Unfortunately, this was discovered to be a hoax.

The dog was owned by the woman and child; the woman staged the attack by the guy (who was a friend), because she didn't want her dog any more and she didn't want to pay any fees to the shelter for dropping her dog off.

Whatever possessed her to do such a thing, I don't wanna know.

Still, I've heard of true stories before, but to lie, just plain wrong.
