Finally, some good news. And this time, it’s from Florida! (Yes, it’s possible.) We’re used to hearing stories of man-eating alligators or man-eating men when it comes to the sunshine state, but today we have a new one: a hero dog. Tank and his boy were just hanging out in the front yard when suddenly, an unruly dog rushed up onto the scene, seemingly heading for the boy. Tank said, “Not today, bitch!” and drove the attacker away. If you don’t believe it, it was all caught on tape. Somebody get this good boy a trophy filled with Beggin’ Bits!
The video of Tank’s heroics was shared on TikTok where users applauded the canine’s courage. via People:
Tank the dog’s owners shared on social media that a neighbor’s dog charged straight at their 6-year-old boy while the child was playing in the front yard with Tank, according to Newsweek.
Footage of the incident shows the German shepherd springing into action. In the video, Tank sees the other dog running toward the boy and chases the approaching canine off before the animal can reach the child.
“Our neighbor’s dog randomly charged at my son last night & my Tanky saved him from getting mauled or worst,” [email protected] captioned a TikTok video of the event. The video has since gone viral with over 26 million views.
Here’s Tank doing his duty:
I’m not a parent, but even I know that that’s a scary scene. Thank God for Tank. Less Florida Man stories and more Tank! Now, as is ritual, I’m going to show this video to the family cats in the hope that they’ll learn to respond with the love and loyalty I expect from them when, if ever, I’m in danger. In spite of the number of times I bother them a day, they’ll certainly put aside their annoyance with me and come to my aid!
