There is a long list of reasons people give when getting a dog. Some enjoy the company, while others need dogs for various health reasons. But, over the years, there is one particular reason that can be considered the most common of all: protection.
Known for being loyal and courageous, dogs are often taken in by people who feel safer around the presence of their four-legged babies. Some even deliberately get dogs and train them to attack people upon hearing a single command word. That, however, is not the case for the human and her furbaby in this story.
From peaceful to horrifying real quick
During one fine Thursday morning in May of 2019, Kristin King was just going about her day and peacefully working in Detroit. For her, there was nothing unusual about the day. She knew that at the end of the day, she would go home to her dog, Caleb, who was patiently waiting for her and her boyfriend. Kristin had no idea that her day, and most probably her life, was about to be completely changed.
At 11 AM, Kristin received a call from her home surveillance company, SimpliSafe, but she did not think anything of it. Even after learning that a man was in her home, Kristin merely shrugged it off and told the person on the phone that it was probably just her landlord. What she heard next, however, sent chills down her spine.
Five minutes of horror
Upon learning that the intruder was hurting her beloved German Shepherd, Caleb, Kristin immediately told her home surveillance company to call the police. As it turns out, Caleb was quick to confront the intruder when he broke into the front door of the house. Unwilling to leave without stealing anything, the intruder then grabbed a lamp and started attacking the German Shepherd.
Within only about five minutes, the intruder managed to harm Caleb to get him to back off, proceed with stealing jewelry, and leave the scene of the crime. Luckily, Kristin’s house is riddled with surveillance cameras, and videos of the incident have now been going around the Internet.
Kristin and the authorities are hopeful that because the video is now being spread all over the world, it won’t be long before the intruder is caught. To know more about this story, watch the video below:
