    OKLAHOMA CITY, OK -- A family dog made a lifesaving move when the family needed him most.

    The dog's more than a friend, even more than a companion and family members said he's the reason they're alive.

    The family's hero is their dog, "D-boy."

    Roberta Trawick was sitting on the couch when a man busted in, through the front door.

    "He came in, pointed a gun at me and said, ‘Get down on the ground'," Trawick said.

    The next thing Roberta knew, her dog ran in from another room, ready to attack.

    "I was too scared to move, I didn't know what to think," Trawick said.

    But before the dog could get a hold of the intruder, the man started shooting.

    "I seen him shoot the dog twice," Trawick said. "He shot him once in the head and he was still going after him and the guy shot him again."

    "D-boy" was shot three times, altogether. The intruder, apparently spooked, took off out the front door.

    "It is amazing, it's amazing that he want after that guy, and that I still have a family," family member Angelic Shoemaker said.

    The family has no idea why the man broke in or how the dog survived.

    "The vet said if it wasn't for his hard head he wouldn't be here," Trawick said. "He's got a hard head."

    That hard headed dog was determined to protect his family, and a family that owes a debt of gratitude to their four legged friend.

    "I'm sorry my dog got shot, but I still got my family and we still got our dog," Shoemaker said.

    The family now faces another obstacle. They don't have enough money to pay the dog's medical bills. So far, they owe around $1,500.

    Oklahoma City Police are still looking for the man who shot the family dog. If you have any information, call Crimestoppers at 405-235-7300.

    I want to know what kind of dog it was. Obviously the thing has a bullet proof head that might be able to pay dividends on bullet proof vest research down the road.

    My cat wouldn't have to do shit, the threat would have been neutralized before the perp had a chance to shoot.

    Didnt see the pic first time through.

    I guess that is one reason to own a pit. Never understood the desire till now I guess.

    My pit is awesome. I just might freak the fuck out if I saw someone shoot him.

    video said he had entrance and exit wounds so probably not .25, .380 or 9mm FMJ maybe.

    Further proof that 9mm has no stopping power and therefore, .45 > * (except 10mm which is > nukes)
