A 9-year-old Bakersfield boy is being called a hero after he saved a girl from a vicious pit bull.

Drew Heredia says he and a friend were walking her small dog Tuesday when, out of nowhere, a pit bull jumped on the dog.

The 12-year-old girl tried to save her little dog and the pit bull turned on her.

Heredia says he jumped on the dog and applied a choke hold that he learned by taking classes at a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu studio in southwest Bakersfield.

He held the dog for 20 minutes until an animal control officer arrived.

“At first I wanted to kick it, but then I thought, it’s not a good idea because it could get my leg,” Heredia said.

The girl was taken to Mercy Southwest Hospital where she was treated for puncture wounds.

The pit bull is being quarantined at the animal control office, where it will be euthanized after 10 days.

No one has claimed the dog.

The other dog was not hurt. It ran away during the attack, but returned home to the girl Friday afternoon.

I just wish the guy in the video would stop saying "vicious pit bull" and not use a picture of some BYB's monster dog. :rolleyes2:

I think he'd be a GREAT Special Ed teacher. Especially in the alternative program. LOL!

Does anyone wonder why the pit "attacked" the other dog? I know that sometimes pits are dog-aggressive, but still. From what I know, pits are dog-aggressive after being fought or trained...My pit still wants to be friends with the saint bernard that wants to kill him...

They don't have to be trained, it's been bred into them for a long time.

We have lots of dog aggression topics in the training section. And be glad your dog still wants other doggy friends. :)
