A heroic dog has died after saving four children from being abused by a Rottweiler.
The incident happened on May 25 at a rural property in Linhares, Brazil.
According to the hero dog’s owner, Aderaldo Bergamo, the Rottweiler is owned by a neighbor and has previously attacked other people.
The pinscher, named Bili, was killed trying to protect four children between the ages of three and seven from the dangerous dog.
Aderaldo said his owner, who owns a property near his property, lets the rottweiler roam free and he shows up on his land often.
He told local media, “He belongs to the neighbor.” The plots are large and the children play in different places.
“The neighbor’s dog runs around everywhere, always without a chain.” He’s bitten about four or five people.
“And this time the kids were playing in my yard when the rottweiler arrived very excited.”
Aderaldo continued, “Bili was playing with the children.” But when Bili saw the dog approaching the children, he attacked the dog with infinite courage.
“While Bili was being attacked by the other dog, the children’s parents came to save her. He (Bili) gave his life to save the children; he was a great hero.
“It’s a very sad story.” “I’ve warned the neighbor so many times to be careful with that dog.”
The pinscher, who had been with Aderaldo’s family for a year, was taken to the vet but suffered fatal cardiac arrest from the injuries sustained.
Aderaldo said: “Bili eventually died.” “There was no money, we couldn’t do anything because the injuries were serious.”
He also told local media about the pain of telling his four-year-old daughter that Bili had died.
Aderaldo said, “She already misses him … We’re already trying to get another dog and give him the same name.”
