Droggie the Pit Bull is getting plenty of treats after saving his owner from a man who was attacking him with a screwdriver. The attacker, Jason Perez, jabbed Droggie’s owner in the shoulder with the screwdriver as they walked past him. That’s when Droggie jumped to the rescue

Droggie bit Perez on the butt, then nipped his leg. Perez fell down, and Droggie’s owner ran away. The police arrested Perez shortly after. There was no motivation for the attack, according to the police, and it seems like a case of mistaken identity. Perez is being charged with attempted murder.
