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).
