Hercules, a 10-month-old Rottweiler puppy from The Woodlands, Texas, is living up to his name after saving his owner from an attacker. Catalina Humphrey was walking her dog along a trail in the Grogan’s Mill community around 4 p.m. Saturday when a man came up from behind and grabbed her.

She told KHOU that Hercules sprung into action before she could even react. “He went around behind me and attacked him. I fell down. I was surprised because he’s sweet and loving. I didn’t know he would exhibit that side of him,” Humphrey said.

Hercules, a 110-pound, 10-month old puppy, bit the attacker over and over again until the man ran off screaming and bleeding.

“I didn’t have a purse on me. I just had my workout gear on. I didn’t have something that would draw me out for him to want to attack me like that,” Humphrey said. “I don’t know what his intent was, but I know it wasn’t good”

Investigators with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office collected DNA from Hercules’ mouth and a scratch on Humphrey’s shoulder. Humphrey will assist police in creating a sketch.

Police have also checked nearby hospitals and clinics for reports of a man being treated for bite wounds.

Meanwhile, Hercules was treated to some extra treats and a spa day reward for his heroic actions.

The attacker is described as a clean-shaven black male in his 20’s, about 5-foot-10 and weighs approximately 175 pounds. Anyone with information should call the MCSO at 936-760-5800 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-392-STOP (7867).

    Kind of surprised she was surprised. Our fur babies are loving and gentle with us. But someone wants to hurt us, threaten us. They will defend what they consider part of the pack. Family. That's us. Even cats have been known to jump into the fray and defend their human family member. Numerous accounts of such events. I have both dogs and cats. Two years ago my cat protected my from a perceived threat. Police caught a burglar because the cat attacked him when he got close to where his human was sleeping. Gouged the mans face real good. All the cops had to do was follow the trail of blood couple blocks to the man's apartment. Many items in the news. So how can she be surpresed?
