    Dog gives life protecting family - home invasion, shots fired.

    A dog IS good home defense - sometimes.

    Bulldog Killed While Saving Greenbelt Family From Intruder - Greenbelt, MD Patch

    Suddenly, the window glass shattered in Ashayla’s bedroom. Having taken off her nurse’s uniform, Lucinda rushed from her room to Ashayla’s bedroom wearing only her undergarments — fearing Ashayla was still there.

    The next thing she knew, Lucinda said a gun was in her face, and a masked intruder commanded her, “Freeze *****.”

    In that moment, Lucinda, realized her daughter was not in the bedroom and yelled “hide.” Ignoring the intruder’s order, she ran for Ashayla.

    A bullet whizzed by Lucinda’s head in the hallway, barely missing her, she said.

    She looked to see the gun firing again, this time not at her but at Joe, who had crossed her in the hallway and was lunging at the intruder, she said. Four bullets hit Joe, one to the head. But he would not stop, Lucinda said, and he growled.

    It was “like a growl, I’ve never ever heard before,” Lucinda recalled.

    Then she heard what sounded like the intruder fumbling with the venetian blinds and she saw Joe fall. He looked at her before he hit the ground — with a look Lucinda said she won’t forget. It was if he was saying, “Mommy, you’re safe now,” she said.

    A dog it the most loyal creature and, yes, they will surrender their life to protect.

    I hope that when they attempt to capture this intruder, he resists and will "surrender" his life.

    Dogs are just wonderful, it's a shame most of them don't get a fair deal in life. Hope they catch the BG before he does find a helpless victim.

    There is a reason all Dogs go to heaven.

    A dog is a great alarm, buys you time, and in cases such as this give their life for their owner. Most of all they are great companions.

    Ain't no dogs in heaven, you say? Then you shouldn't call it heaven. (not in response to Cowboy... we know better. Just that some fools say that there ain't)

    RIP Joe, Good BOY!

    RIP little buddy

    The Greenbelt police paid to have Joe cremated, Lucinda said. Peck said that a lot of the officers wanted to help and gave from their personal funds, and the community pitched in too.
    Props to the Greenbelt PD..... class acts every one of them.

    Loyalty from a dog like that brings a tear to my eye. What a great dog.

    Anyone want to help set up a meeting between the bad guy and God so he can explain why he shot the dog.

    If someone can get 5+ years for animal cruelty, this idiot, if found should be given that as well.
    Sad he didn't leave DNA(blood) or something incriminating at the scene for the police to go on..

    He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
    You are his life, his love, his leader.
    He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
    You owe it to him to be worthy of such deviotion.

    God bless and keep Joe.

    As for that SOB, may he go straight to hell as quickly as possible.
