This is definitely a case of good karma coming back to you.
I'll bet that the folks that did the adoption had no idea what a good move this would turn out to be!
Just goes to show that doing a good deed will sometimes pay off in a very positive way!
Newly adopted dog runs off burglar from Ohio home
Published: November 11, 2011 - 09:51 AM
HILLSBORO, OHIO: A Southwest Ohio couple who adopted a Saint Bernard to save him say he saved their home from burglary a few hours later.
Rubert “Lee” Littler says he was taking Hercules outside Wednesday night when the 135-pound dog started growling, then charged after a man running out of their basement. The dog bit into the man’s ankle as he climbed a fence and got away. Police say the home’s phone and cable lines had been cut.
Lee and Elizabeth Littler brought the dog home from Highland County’s pound less than seven hours earlier. The dog had been found, bloody and dehydrated, by hikers on Oct. 31.
The Littlers tell The Times-Gazette of Hillsboro they wanted to keep him from being euthanized but now figure he’s earned a permanent home.
Keeping the pup around sounds like a very good idea to me! In fact, I'd say that all signs are pointing to this being a match up that's just meant to be!
Coffee in the kitchen this morning. That OK with you?
I'd say he bonded very quickly with his new owners and new home!
He certainly showed them where he wants to live :-) Great dog!
Have a great day!
Some times what goes around comes around. I had a tom cat that would protect the other cats and us. Even our little dogs make good burgler alarms.
You take care of a dog it will love you and protect you. Wish people were as good.
They say a rescue knows you saved them. I can't do anything with out my little guy right next to me. I got very lucky when I found Fred.
Coffee anywhere with good friends is OK with me.
Pretty good way to mark your territory, I'd say!
Animals can make themselves a part of the family pretty quickly!
Thank you, sir, for coming by today!
Can't make it much clearer than that!
He can come stay at my house if he wants!
Good to see you again, my friend! Thanks for stopping by today!
Cats can really let you know if something different is going on!
The size of the dog doesn't seem to matter when it comes to being protective, I think!
Thanks, my friend, for coming over today!
I have been thinking a lot about getting a dog lately.
Don't know how my cat would like the idea, though!
Thanks for dropping in today!
I'm sure that you are probably right about that!
Fred has been a good choice for you, I think!
You have a great day, sweetie, and thanks for coming by this morning!
Cool story, but I hope it doesn't turn out to be one that will bite anyone running whether they need it or not. I've seen dogs do that.
It turned out well for the dog and the couple. The story doesn't get much better than that.
