16 year old Javier Mercado dialed 911 and hid in a bathroom closet when he heard several people break into his family’s house.
And then, his German shepherd Rex ran in.
“And then I just heard a bunch of barking and struggling, and then one of the guys screaming, The dog! The dog bit me! Get the dog!’”
After a long tussle, Mercado says he heard four gunshots, and the dog cried out. Seconds later, he says, police arrived, and the burglars fled. Read the full story here at KOMO News.
“Reunited and it feels so good” - is probably what Rex the dog would say/sing if he could. Rex was shot multiple times after his owner says he saved his life during a home invasion. #komonews pic.twitter.com/E4KNhhxXVP— Patrick Quinn (@PatrickQuinnTV) February 25, 2018
