When Pittsburgh beer distributor, Sam Caruso was attacked by robbers, it was his daughter’s dog, Coco, that chased off the robbers, potentially saving his life. Sadly, Coco never returned after the chase.
Caruso told CBS Pittsburg the robbers beat him over the head with a brick and took his money. That’s when Coco, a Belgian Malinois, came to his rescue. She chased the robbers away, then running around in an excited state, didn’t come back when he called her.
Caruso said, “she isn’t wearing tags because she had chewed them off, but if you see her, take her to an animal shelter because she has a microchip.”
Sam’s daughter, Shari, who owns Coco, explained, “She was protecting my dad, who got mugged, and chased the perpetrators away.”
Shari continued, “She’s just the perfect dog. She’s a great family dog, but she’ll protect you, and that’s what she did.”
The family are desperate to get their dog back and urge anyone in Pittsburgh’s North Side in the Mexican War Streets area to report any sightings or take Coco to a veterinarian or shelter where she can be scanned for her microchip.
