Dogs are some of the most loyal creatures on the planet. If you treat them right, dogs will follow you anywhere, do anything for you and ensure your safety as best they can.
A family in Chesterfield County, Virginia, learned how valuable a dog can be in early August when they came home one day and found blood splattered all over the walls of their house, WRIC reported.
The family soon discovered that their home had been burglarized, but thanks to their faithful German sheperd, Oden, the thief didn’t get anything from the break-in. In fact, he lost quite a bit of blood.
“We noticed something when we walked in, when I walked in with my mother and there is blood spots on the ground, we looked up stairs and you see trails of blood coming from up stairs going all the way down,” Tristan Murrin told the station.

From the trail of evidence, it’s clear that Oden defended the house brutally — despite never showing any aggressive tendencies before.
“He plays with the kids, the cul-de-sac knows him. They know him as big dog, the community loves him, the kids come up to him and want to touch him and play with him,” Murrin said.
Thankfully, the dog wasn’t injured during the attack, but the robber sure was.
“I think the dog did its job. He knew that someone was not supposed to be in my house and no one was home and he knows that he wasn’t supposed to be in there and he was doing something that he wasn’t supposed to be doing and so he knew to act upon it,” Murrin stated.
Police had the robber’s DNA, thanks to the Oden. They also knew to be on the lookout for someone with some pretty serious injuries — injuries that may well have required medical attention.
Anyone who’s ever owned a dog should understand and appreciate how loyal they are. I’m sure this particular dog got a lot of treats and belly rubs for defending the home! Good boy!
