Pit bull saves boy, 8, from bee swarm

(NEWSER) – Hades, a pit bull, is doing her part to ensure the breed’s good name. When Jesse-Cole Shaver; his sister, Jasmine; and some friends were playing in the Oregon woods, someone stepped on a rotten log — and bees zoomed out to attack. Jesse-Cole, 8, was stung some 24 times, and he couldn’t make it up a steep hill to escape. Fortunately, family dog Hades swooped in, pulling him by the pants up the hill, the New York Daily News reports. “Hades saw me and came and she dragged me up to the grass and stopped and let me crawl on her back and then took me to mom,” the boy tells KPTV. “I just heard a bunch of screaming, then I saw my dog dragging my son up by his pants,” the mother tells KPTV, via 10 News.

I personally love Pit Bulls. They get a horrible reputation, as do all big dogs or strong dogs. A doggy is only as bad as their owner!
