A missing child was discovered on the streets of St. Louis, Missouri, being guarded by a huge stray dog after escaping from his father’s house on his own.
A neighbor saw the little child, who was dressed in his pajamas and walking down a neighborhood with his dog by his side on the morning of October 1st while he was wearing his pajamas.
The youngster was discovered by a neighbor, who asked to stay nameless, when she was out walking her dogs and then proceeded to spend the next several hours knocking on doors all around the neighborhood in an attempt to locate the boy’s family.
The Pit Bull did not leave boy’s side until he had been reunited with his family, which took many days and noted that boy “looked well taken care of, he was extremely nice, he was very clean; he just didn’t have the shoes on.”
Taylor’s father was eventually able to identify his son through a social media post and was reunited with him shortly thereafter.
The Good Samaritan said that she believed it was her civic duty to assist the boy. “It is critical that we remain together, that we support one another, and that we return to the things that our grandparents and their community used to do,” she said ,”it is important that we develop a feeling of oneness.”
As for Taylor’s dog guardian angel, the St. Louis Police Department is now considering adopting the stray dog from the community.
