When Shane Shafer’s mom had to leave her nine-year-old home alone to run an errand, she never could have imagined the events that were about to unfold. Leaving the house to pick up her other kids, she figured Shane would be safe in his room until her swift return.
He had been perfectly fine before. Little did she know at the time, but a stranger was lurking nearby…
As the little boy quietly played in his room, a sound at the front door immediately caught his attention. At first he thought his mom had come home early.But when he went downstairs to check on the noise, he realized it wasn’t her! To his disbelief, he was standing face-to-face with a stranger wearing a ski mask.
Frozen in place, Shane’s mind raced as the little boy plotted his next move. He panicked with a stranger staring him down.
“He didn’t look at anything else. He just kept his eyes on me,” the boy told reporters. Not knowing how to react, Shane made a fast dash upstairs.
Suddenly he heard the stranger following him, but there was one surprise the masked man didn’t anticipate. Baby Girl, the family’s loyal pit bull, was lurking in the shadows ready to do whatever necessary to save her loving human’s life.
Baby Girl was not about to cower in fear from the intruder. Not when her human brother’s life and safety was at stake.
