This is an amazing story of a friendly, loving family dog who instinctively knew that he had to use his voice to help a woman under attack. Blitz is usually a sweet-tempered dog who jumps up to sniff and lick visitors, but when his human opened her front door to investigate screams for help, Blitz bolted past her to defend the woman under attack.
Steven Paul Schumacher was dragging his estranged wife by her hair from her home across the street to his parked car when Blitz came running and barking. Startled by Blitz, Schumacher loosened his grip on his victim, who then ran into Blitz's home for safety. Blitz's human then stopped the protective dog before he did anything to harm Schumacher, and before Schumacher was able to harm Blitz.
When police arrived on the scene, Schumacher, who was carrying a large knife, was pacing outside of Blitz's home. Thanks to Blitz, Schumcher was charged with felony home invasion and domestic assault in April, 2009.
