‘Hero’ Pit Bull Saved Owner’s Life During Springfield Home Invasion

SPRINGFIELD, Missouri – A 9-month-old pit bull named Blu saved his owner’s life Monday morning when the dog confronted a home invader, according to the owner’s brother.

The suspect — or suspects — apparently shot the dog and fled the scene, police say, and have not been identified.

According to Lt. Jennifer Charleston, the dog suffered what appeared to be a gunshot wound to his leg.

Charleston said police were called to the 2600 block of West Monroe Street at about 11 a.m. for a report of shots fired.

Several police cars and an animal control vehicle responded to the scene.

Charleston said two people were in a bedroom of the house when they heard some banging, then bullets came through the bedroom door.

According to Charleston, the door was kicked open and the dog charged at the intruder or intruders.

The dog apparently ran out of the house and was found a few houses down the block. One of Blu’s paws appeared to be bloody, but the injury appeared to be non-life threatening.
