Pit bull chases off home invader in Florida

A pit bull attacked and chased off an intruder from a home in Bradenton, Florida.

Manatee Sheriff’s deputies said two adults and two children were sleeping in the home when the adults heard someone break into the home and get attacked by the family pit bull.

The robber fired one shot at the dog, but apparently missed, deputies say. As the residents huddled in a closet, the intruder entered their bedroom, but was attacked by the dog again.

The residents heard the robber shout “get off of me,” before he fled the home without taking anything.

The adults and the dog were not injured; the two sleeping children never awoke during the attack.
