Victor’s life was saved by his owner, Amber Melena. The darling pit bull was rescued from a dog fighting ring and years of abuse and taken to a shelter where it was discovered that he’d been beaten severely, and he was living in conditions so deplorable he might have been better off on the streets to fend for himself. He was rescued, but he was not adopted. What that meant for him was that every single day was a day closer to his death if someone did not come into the shelter and take him home. Just before he was scheduled to be euthanized to make room for younger, healthier animals to come in, Amber Melena fell madly in love with Victor and took the pit bull home with her.
This beautiful rescue dog took matters into his own hand with a carjacker attempted to break into Melena’s car when she was out running errands. She sat down in her passenger seat and went to buckle herself in. That is when her door flew open and a man attempted to steal her car. Victor, however, was not impressed. He turned around from his seat, let out one warning bark and the carjacker stumbled backward, fell down and took off. Victor saved Amber Melena’s life with his heroism and his affection for her. We like to think it’s his way of saying thank you to her for saving his life.
