Dog Takes Bullet to Save Family

CONNEAUT, Ohio -- A german shepherd named Sirus is credited with saving his family after a terrifying home invasion.
Sirus' owner said he always lets her know when someone shows up at her home outside Conneaut in Ashtabula County.
Michelle Pryor said early Monday morning Sirus began barking so she let him out and was stunned when she heard gunfire outside the home.
Sirus got shot in the chest and on the muzzle between his eyes.
As the dog lain wounded, Michelle hid her baby daughter in a laundry basket and alerted her fiance, who grabbed his gun.
The gunman kicked in the front door of the home, and was confronted by Pryor's fiance.
She said, "He grabbed his gun and just started shooting and they ran."
The veterinarian who treated Sirus was amazed that he survived.
Michelle Pryor believes her dog took bullets that could have been fired at her family.
She told Fox 8 News, "I couldn't believe it, he saved our lives, he's our guardian angel, he saved my baby."
As for a motive for shooting Sirus and breaking into the house, Pryor said she had just cashed a tax refund check and believes she was followed home.
"The economy is bad, people are getting desperate, they know that the sheriff's (deputies) are laid off," Pryor commented.
The intruder fled in a white, four door Buick. Anyone who can help identify the gunman is asked to call the Ashtabula County Sheriff's Department.
Guardian Angle and protector, well done Sirus.
Good thing man in home had a gun.
May Sirus have a full recovery.
But a bad thing...he needs some range time. He had knowledge that someone was coming in, had the surprize, and now this dirtbag lives to 'invade' again.:ziplip::banned:

Why no description of BG? How can anyone help identify him without a discription?
Unleash the ASPCA and PETA people and other dog lovers! Glad that the good people are alive and survived; but they ought to go to a range and get some practice in...as should I. It is a sad shame that we should practice and prepare for such mean routines.
wife should be getting a gun as well, hell I need to go buy a gun.
When my friends come in my house all I hear is holy crap,they were laughing the other night and said you can't trip and fall anywhere in my house without hitting a gun,Most of them are back in the safe,but I got 3 pistols within arms reach of my key pad as I type
