Pit Bull - Love-A-Bull photo from YouTubeA Florida woman named Angela was leaving a playground with her toddler in Port Charlotte when a man approached her in the parking lot and threatened her at knife point.

Suddenly, a Pit Bull who had been wandering the area charged the man, growling and barking until the attacker fled in surrender.

An animal control officer believed the exceptional part of the story was the fact that the dog had never met the woman or child before, yet instinctively defended them.

“You hear about family dogs protecting their owners, but this dog was like her guardian angel,” told Pet Pulse.
