Florida shelter dog was a hero (and her new owner didn’t even know it)

Dog heroes come in all shapes and sizes.  This story, from St Petersburg, Florida is just another example.

Mabeline was being walked by a teenage shelter volunteer when a sex offender assaulted the girl.  Mabeline barked and scared the man away.  He was later arrested.

The Friends of Strays shelter was able to place Mabeline with a new owner, who only found out about Mabeline’s heroics after the dog came to live with her.  This proves that it was Mabeline’s sweet nature that was her best asset  – her courage was an added bonus!
