Pit Bull Hailed a Hero After Saving Boy From Bees

Monday September 15, 2014    8:57 PM

An Oregon City family is calling their pit bull a hero after it saved an 8-year-old boy from a swarm of bees.

A group of children were playing near a creek and one of them unleashed a swarm of bees by stepping on a rotten log. Most of the kids got away but Jesse Shaver was being repeatedly stung and had trouble making it up the hill.

Fortunately, his dog Hades dragged the boy up the slope to the grass and, once there, let him mount her. "She let me crawl on her back and took me to my mom," Jesse told Fox 12.

"I'm so glad we adopted her," said Jesse's mom, who was "astonished to see the dog dragging her son to safety."
