A good dog is a loyal dog, one that’s got your back in the worst of circumstances. You may know your dog is loyal, but you won’t know how badly prepared it is for following through on that loyalty until it needs to.
A TikTok posted by @jedquaresma shows an absolutely chaotic encounter in which a dog saves its owner in the worst way.
It starts with Dog Mom and dog running across the street to the aid of a woman in red who seems to be getting attacked or mugged:
The dog mom tries to come between the mugger and the woman in red, and the dog gets dragged into the fray:
The dog then tries to help by biting the leg of the woman in red as his mom grapples with the mugger in the background:
The dog finally seems to notice that they are in the wrong place, and chases after mom and mugger, who have wrestled further away:
The dog tries to break them up, but only succeeds by leaping and biting mom's shoulder and absolutely body-slamming her into the ground:
Meanwhile, the mugger gets away:
Mom gets to her feet, looking shaky, and the dog looks at her like, "Okay, let's get back to our walk!"
I have a lot of questions, but most of them are about the person who filmed this instead of helping at all.
The comments, though, are focused on how wrong everything went:
Look, the dog tried. Now it might be time to invest in some training, so you're both on the same page next time you leap into battle.
