As Brianne Smith readied for work on October 28, she had no idea the frenzy of attention she’d be attracting. But after saving a 2-year-old pit bull from a maniacal man who shot the dog and slammed its head in a car door, she certainly deserves it.
When Smith first caught sight of the dog, near 8 Mile and Schaeffer, in Detroit, it was already bleeding from the man’s attacks, which she could not abide.
“I was very, very, very highly emotional after seeing him kick the dog, and his head got slammed in the door of a car… I freaked out,” she told Fox 2.
Smith confronted the man and demanded he release the bludgeoned animal. But he wasn’t about to give up, and after Smith made it known the police would be called, the man grabbed the dog and fled.
