My sister had an old dog that was very aggressive and would not let anyone near it. The dog had been abused in the past and was very scared of people.
One day a little girl came over to play with her sister, but the dog attacked her. The little girl’s mom came running and got the dog off her. She grabbed the little girl, but she was badly injured and died a few days later.
The dog was put down because it was too aggressive.
My sister was devastated and decided to get another dog to take her place. She went to the shelter and saw a little terrier mix with a missing eye. The shelter worker said he was very protective of his home, but would let you pet him. My sister took him home and named him “Eye Patches.” He protected her from anything that would harm her.
