It happened today, on a beautiful and warm Sunday morning.
I have two big dogs, a Japanese Akita Inu called Yuki and a Golden Retriever puppy (7months old) called Neo.
I went to the park with Neo and he played with two small dogs. As most Golden Retrievers, he is an extremely nice and friendly dog.
We were walking back home when I heard steps.
Someone was walking behind me. I didn’t suspect anything as I knew that my neighborhood is one of the safest in the whole city and it was 11 o’clock in the morning.
Neo felt that something wasn’t right, so he started barking and growling at the guy that was walking behind me. He said “hi” and they continued speaking in another language. I quickly said “hi” and tried to ignore him, I was just one street away from my house.
He wanted to steal my bag, so he told me to give it to him. I refused and he tried to attack me but my puppy stood in front of him and barked and growled. I shouted at him to go away and a neighbor heard me and Neo, so he came out. The idiot walked away as if nothing happened.
I’m sure he would have managed to attack me if my dog hadn’t protected me.
People think that Golden Retrievers are too nice to attack and but they would definitely protect their family. Of course he wouldn’t have attempted an attack if my Akita was also with us but Neo has a brave heart too.
Thank you Neo, my hero puppy ❤️❤️❤️
