Bella the Pitbull was always alert. But on this particular day, she was so frantic that her human had to see what was going on outside. And thanks to her, a life was saved.

It’s a shame that Pitbulls have such a bad reputation when they are in fact one of the most loyal and affectionate dogs in the world. Bella certainly proved that on this day.

On said day, Bella started barking at the door. So far, so normal. After all, Bella is a good guard dog.

A guardian angel

But something about her frenzied behaviour told her dad, David, that he’d better check it out. So he went to the window to see what was going on.

And there he saw it: his elderly neighbour had fallen and couldn’t get back up. David rushed outside to help her up, and was relieved to see she wasn’t hurt.

Pitbull heroics

Thanks to Bella, the elderly lady was able to return home for the night. If it hadn’t been for her quick thinking, the elderly lady may not have been discovered by anyone until the next morning!

Now Bella is not just the neighbour’s dog. She’s the neighbourhood hero, and with good reason! Well done Bella!
