Billy is an affectionate 5-year-old bully terrier that saved his family from two armed men, and he got shot for it.
While walking Billy around the block near their West Philadelphia home, two armed men stopped the family to rob them, and when Billy sensed that was happening was not right, his protective instincts kicked in and he started barking to get the predators to leave his family alone.
The two armed men then shot Billy in the heart before the dog could jump at them and immediately ran and hopped in a getaway car and drove off as fast as they could.
The family cried for help and nearby police officers rushed to help them, and together they rushed poor billy to Ryan Hospital.
