A family says their German shepherd came to the rescue after a neighborhood dog charged straight at their 6-year-old while the child was in the front yard
This is the disturbing moment a German shepherd had to come to the rescue of a young boy being attacked by the neighbour’s dog.
Footage shows the six-year-old running out of his house in the US state of Florida to play with his pet, Tank.
Moments after, a large black dog can be seen charging towards the youngster from across the street.
As the dog looks like it is about to jump on the child, Tank pushes him down and covers him with his body before seamlessly redirecting the aggressor away from him.
After chasing the other dog away to a safe distance, Tank appears turn around to check the boy is unharmed.
The mum later posted clip of the brave dog playing with a chew toy, describing him as ‘the man, the myth, the legend’.
