PASADENA, Texas — Don’t mess with this dog in Texas.
A hero pooch stopped a kidnapper in his tracks by taking a chunk out of his leg as he tried to snatch the dog’s 11-year-old owner off the street, police said.
Police in Pasadena, Texas say the dog sprang into action when the man grabbed the girl by the arm and tried to drag her into his SUV on Sunday morning.
The beagle terrier mix, named Ray, then bit the suspect on the leg, which allowed the child to run away, the Houston Chronicle reported. The man then hopped back into his car and sped off.
Police said the girl was visiting family in the area when the attack occurred.
Police say they are continuing to search for the alleged kidnapper.
