A dog in Brooklyn, New York is proving he really is man’s best friend - he took a bullet for his owner when three robbers jumped him. But don’t worry - the pooch and his owner are fine after the mugging.
When one of the suspects pulled a gun, the pup yelped and startled him, according to officials. And the shaky shooter fired a round, hitting the dog in the lower back. The crooks also took the victim’s cell phone before they ran off.
The dog was treated at an ASPCA and a vet removed the bullet, so police could examine it for evidence, a spokeswoman says. Hopefully this pet makes a full recovery and gets to enjoy some well earned treats while he heals.
