They say no dog is dangerous, but under the care of the wrong person can be trained to harm humans.
Little Remayah Hernandez was riding her bike outside with a friend.
Before she knew what was happening, the five-year-old was being attacked by her neighbour’s dog.
The Labrador retriever mix bit Remayah in the face injuring her eye lids, upper lip, and cheek.
But showing just how important treating your dog as part of the family can be, Remayah’s family’s dog Trigger jumped over the fence when he saw the baby girl being attacked.
He managed to fight the dog off Remayah.
Remayah’s mom Lucila, credits their pit bull for saving the little girl from something worse.
“He’s like a hero. He’s like a protective dog. We taught him to be protective and caring for the family,” says Lucila.
Remayah was left scared and traumatized by the experience. The neighbor’s dog was later euthanized.
Her family had saved money to take the little girl to Disney World.
But their plans had to be put on hold so they could use the money for her medical expenses.
A GoFundMe page was created to help raise money for Remayah to still visit Disney World.
The $1,000 goal was met and even exceeded.
But for now Remayah is just grateful her dog Trigger was there to dave the day.
