We all have heard the popular saying that goes by ‘dog is a man’s best friend’. But have you ever come across any such incident? If you have, here is one more story about a 2-year-old German shepherd named Rex who has saved his 16-years-old-human’s life by taking the bullet. 

What happened was one day burglars invaded this 16-years-old boy’s house when he was all alone. Javier, the boy heard some strange noise and went down to check its source. There he saw a vehicle that was not familiar.

“I then heard the sliding door break, and it is made out of just glass so it shattered really loud,” said Mercado. “My dog ran downstairs, and it just started barking and barking. I heard one guy scream, ‘the dog bit me, get the dog.’”

“Rex stormed back to the upstairs floor all beat up and bloody,” shared Javier’s aunt. “Soon, the criminals proceeded to the upstairs floor and trashed all the bedrooms. As they entered the room where Javier was hiding in the closet, Rex came out with the little strength he had left in him. And threw himself at them as he knew my nephew was in danger.” Unfortunately, they shot the pup four times and he gave up his fight.
