Last summer, a mob of 20 angry men showed up at the residence of a young couple in Bristol, U.K. The men believed that this was the home of a registered sex offender, and they refused to leave even when the couple explained that the person they were seeking no longer lived there.
The group didn’t believe the young couple and began attacking them. That’s when their five-year-old dog Kylo, a Staffy Cross Labrador, jumped into action and ran off 15 of the men.
But the remaining five men beat up the 25-year-old male resident, leaving him with severe bruising, a broken nose, two black eyes and a fractured rib. They also kicked and spat at the 24-year-old woman.
This attack was the worst incident in a series of assaults the couple had endured, from people banging on their door and running off to people throwing things at their windows.
Kylo saved the lives of his owners, but when the police arrived, the dog was so perturbed and riled up by all the confusion that he chased and bit two of the police officers in the continuing attempt to protect his owners.
