ABQ man steps in to end pit bull attack | KRQE News 13

When a pit bull started attacking Cherif Porter’s dog, Porter who is in a wheelchair, felt helpless. She thought she was next.

As others just watched, one man risked his own safety to step in.

“He’s our lifesaver,” Porter said. “Had it not been for him that pit bull would have killed Lillie.”

Porter lives in the neighborhood of Presbyterian Hospital.

She was passing near the emergency room entrance Wednesday evening when the pit bull started attacking Lillie, a miniature Schnauzer.

That’s when a man named Charles, a stranger to her, stepped in.

“I thought, ‘Oh my gosh,’ because he grabbed the pit bull, choking it around the neck so he would release Lillie.”

Charles didn’t want any of the glory so he declined to go on camera. But he said when he saw that no one else was stepping in, he imagined it was his own dog that needed to be rescued.

Porter says the stranger didn’t stop there.

He and his son took Porter and her dog to an emergency vet, helping Porter into the car and loading her wheelchair into their vehicle.

Lillie is expected to be okay. Porter says vets had to open her up to see if her organs were punctured.

The dog and his owner took off quickly and still haven’t been identified.

Animal Control asks you to call 311 immediately if you witness an attack.
