Meet the two pit bulls whose life wasn’t so kind to them — Ellabelle and Ladybug.
In former days, both dogs had a terrible life. They were neglected and unwanted, but it all came to a full stop when they were adopted from the shelter by Robert McGowan. He could see the sadness, but also the sweetness in them.
“They’re very docile and timid,” McGowan told The Dodo. “They’re not aggressive at all.”
Each day the dogs return the favour by sharing a warm place for Robert, but recently something happend that left him speechless.
One day McGowan was sitting in his garage while four kidnappers rushed in and began to attack him in an instant.
“One just punched me straight in the eye,” McGowan said. “I was knocked off my chair.”
The attackers demanded that Robert hand them the keys from the car. Injured and dazed, McGowan told them the keys were inside the home.
When one of the robbers entered the house, Ellabelle and Ladybug were there to greet them with ferocious welcome.
“They chased them out,” McGowan said. “My girls ran into the garage and stood over me. They stood there barking, making it clear that no one was going to hurt me anymore. The four people took off.”
Ellabelle and Ladybug saved their dad.
McGowan suffered a black eye from the assailants, but thanks to Ellabelle and Ladybug that was all they did. Meanwhile, the two heroic girls were rewarded for their heroic actions.
“They got toys and treats,” McGowan said. “They got good stuff.”
The two pups return the love to McGowan every single day but this last course of events proved him that they love him beyond his expectations. He also hopes this will inspire others to open their homes to a dog in need. Shelters are filled with pups who need owners.
“They are rescues. Unwanted dogs. They saved my life,” he wrote. “Please consider adopting a rescue. They might save your life too.”
