Pitbull’s Instincts Lead Him To Rescue Elderly Woman In Pond

GWINNETT COUNTY, Georgia – A post on Instagram is making the rounds on social media after a brave pooch found a woman desperately in need of help.

Abby posted the story of her dog’s bravery on her Instagram on Tuesday, February 6.

In the post, Abby regales how her dog Bruce saved “a lady’s life today.”

“He had started emoting and whining, just being very loud at the front door,” Abby said. “So, I ws like, huh, this is kind of weird. I went out to investigate.”

To go ahead and give Bruce what he wanted, Abby went to open the door after which the dog bolted outside.

She followed the dog towards the right side of her home where Bruce stopped at the edge of a pond. Just beyond Bruce, she saw an elderly woman who was half naked. Abby then sprung into action and tied Bruce to a tree with his leash and helped the woman out of the water.

“She was trembling and confused and scared,” Abby wrote in the post.

Abby called police and was informed by officers that there was a missing elderly woman case they were working out of Gwinnett and believed this was related. Thankfully, she was the same woman from the missing person case.

“It was an eventful morning and someone’s mom and grandmother did not freeze or drown in a pond because of my wonderful pitty bull Bruce.”

The family was reunited and thanked Abby, but Abby said Bruce is the real hero.

In any case, it was further proof for Abby that Bruce was living up to the hero he was named after – Bruce Wayne, also known as Batman.

Abby rescued Bruce from a shelter. She said pit bulls get a bad rap and it’s unfair. She said Bruce saved a life.

“I wish people gave the breed a chance because everyone needs a hero. If it helps a pit bull get adopted, if it saves a pit bull’s life, I’ll tell Bruce’s story until I’m blue in the face,” said Abby.

She hopes Bruce’s story, already being shared on social media, can shatter misconceptions people have about pitbulls.
