This story contains graphic details that might upset sensitive readers:
It’s no secret that Pitbull Terriers might be the most misunderstood of all dog breeds and humans have sadly exploited and abused this breed for centuries.
You’ll find thousands of videos online where this breed is being tormented and portrayed in a typically negative light. One hardly ever hears or reads anything positive, and this is why it’s so important to share Molly’s heroic story.
Molly is a female Pitbull who has been hailed a hero by the van Wyk family of Rocklands who survived a horrific home invasion thanks to Molly’s protective instincts.
According to the Animal Welfare Society of SA, when Molly realised her family was in danger, she unhesitatingly flew into action to protect them from the armed assailants.
“Despite being beaten and stabbed countless times in her head and body Molly put up a very brave fight and the assailant quickly realised that he had more than met his match and decided to beat a hasty retreat leaving Molly dying in a pool of blood on the floor,” the Animal Welfare Society of SA said.
Molly had lost so much blood that the room could aptly resemble a “murder scene” and in between lapsing in and out of consciousness, she tried to get up to continue defending the hysterical occupants – what a resilient hero!
The Animal Welfare Society of SA put all their effort into saving Molly’s life but she had sadly lost too much blood and her injuries were too severe.
Anyone who has ever owned a socialised Pitbull will confidently express how courageous and caring these brave dogs are, who, regardless of the size or nature of the threat to themselves or those they hold dear to their heart, will willingly lay down their lives to defend those they love most.
Rest in peace Molly, you are the true hero.
