‘Precious’ The Pit Bull Dies Saving Owner From Alligator
“Precious” the pit bull died saving her human from an alligator attack. Her human is now pleading with Florida officials for a code inspection at the marina where he resides.
Precious was a service dog that sensed Robert Lineburger seizures before they happened.
Lineburger lives on his boat at the Port LaBelle Marina. One April night when he left to use the restroom, his pet followed.
The dog’s owner said his pet saved him from the alligator, which tried to bite him on the dock.
“She jumped in front of me. She was roughly 2 to 3 feet away from me when the gator attacked,” said Lineburger.
So sad. This dog was a hero!
