Brave Bull Terrier Shot In Heart While Protecting Family During Armed Robbery

 Veterinary surgeons were skeptical that Billy, a five-year-old Bull Terrier, would survive, but he did.

Billy survived being shot in the heart while protecting his family while walking near their West Philadelphia home when they were approached by two armed men.

Billy’s owner, 25-year-old Felipe Sinisterra, handed over his cell phone to the burglars, but Billy sensed danger right away and began barking at the two men.

The men then shot Billy in the chest and ran away before hopping into a getaway car and driving off.

Billy was quickly resuscitated and stabilized at Ryan Hospital thanks to the assistance of a nearby police officer. Surgeons Williams and Lillian Aronson worked with a team of 30 people to save Billy’s life.

The bullet that tore through Billy’s heart, left lung, diaphragm, liver, stomach, and spleen was treated. He lost a third of his blood and underwent two surgeries to repair his organs, but he is now on the mend.

Billy is still on antibiotics, but he has had over 100 staples removed recently. He’s already back to being his playful self, and he’s glad to be back with his humans.

Sadly, the men who shot Billy have not been apprehended. Police will continue to look for them.
