A brave pit bull gave the ultimate sacrifice for her owner recently after getting in the way of a knife and saving her life. Sadly, six year-old terrier Lucy later died. The sad event took place on Saturday after the dog lunged at her owner Lisa Potts’ attacker – her violent ex-boyfriend Walter Williams, who had come at her with a knife.
Here’s what happened in Ms. Potts’ own words: “Lucy lunged at him and once she lunged at him he caught her in the neck, and once he caught her in the neck she just went to biting him, she was still fighting… Once I got her downstairs I just asked someone for a towel and applied much pressure as I could to it to try to save her life, but she was a fighter and she did good, she really did. If it wasn’t for her, you know he could’ve probably stabbed all of us.”
“I’m about to break down in tears now, my heart is heavy cause I hate that happened to her… I was calling her name, comforting her, rubbing her head, making sure she was still alert.”
Below is Walter Williams, the violent coward who attacked his ex-girlfriend, ultimately killing her poor dog. Williams was immediately taken into custody by local police. He’s now in jail on a battery charge. Prosecutors say there will be additional charges.
