Dog saves 2-year-old by biting kidnapper’s leg


There is a reason why dogs are called a man’s best friend because they have proven time and again that they are the most loyal creatures in the world. Dogs not only comfort people, but also act as protectors.

In England, a dog managed to save a two-year-old girl from being kidnapped when she was out with her mother in Ringwood, Hampshire, on Wednesday morning.

The two kidnappers tried to snatch the baby from the woman after initially showing an interest in their dog. However, their dog managed to thwart the kidnapping attempt by chasing them away and biting one of the two men on his leg.

“A woman and her two-year-old daughter were approached by two men who showed an interest in her dog,” said a Hampshire police spokesman. “The woman reported that one of the men then picked up her daughter and ran with her towards a nearby housing estate. The child was let go after the dog bit the man on his leg,” they added.
