Tim Ryan from Virginia Beach says that their neighborhood is very peaceful with little crime in the area. He said that his family always felt very safe in their neighborhood until something terrible happened when Ryan was not home.
Burglars broke into their home while his two daughters were at home. Ryan believes that the thieves managed to jump onto a blue recycling bin to the backyard fence. A part of the door frame fell when the thieves broke in and made a loud sound against the floor. Ryan’s two daughters were sitting on the couch when they heard a noise. The two girls were scared, luckily, Penelope, their dog, was there to save the day.
Ryan arrived home, and there were already police cars by their house; there was even a helicopter hovering overhead. When he asked his girls about what happened, they told him that they would not have known what to do if Penelope was not there to save them.
Penelope chased the burglars when they entered the house. The girls said that the dog was barking ferociously, which was very out of character for the dog. Penelope she that she had to protect her own family. Ryan could not believe what happened while he was away.
Penelope, a sweet Lab and Pit Bull mix, is a rescue dog. She has proven herself to be a very loyal and loving dog ever since she was adopted. Thanks to her, Ryan and his family feel safe in his home.
Ryan could not imagine the worst things the burglars could have done if the dog did not chase them away. The girls would have been hurt if not for Penelope.
Ryan and his family gave Penelope an amazing life; they rescued her. Penelope knows how much her family has done for her, so she returned the favor without hesitation.
