#5) – Levi
Levi, a 15-year-old pit bull, saved his owners when an armed robber broke into their Wisconsin home.
Bod Stenzel and his girlfriend Darcy Cherry were sitting at their kitchen when an armed robber broke into their home and demanded money.
With no money to give – the couple’s pit bull, Levi jumped into action and barked at the home intruder until he fled the property.
Prior to leaving, the intruder fired his gun shooting Levi in the head. Luckily – the injury wasn’t fatal as the bullet grazed Levi’s head and lodged into his shoulder.
This isn’t the first-time Levi has STEPPED up and SAVED the day! In 2014, the dog took a fall off the edge of a trail while protecting Cherry’s son. As a result – Levi needed his leg amputated.
It seems that Levi was born to be a HERO!
