Stray Dog Adopted By Gas Station Rushes To The Rescue During Armed Robbery

"If it weren't for Randy, who knows how things would have ended."

By Stephen Messenger

Two years ago, when a scared and skinny stray dog started appearing near this gas station in Tamaulipas, Mexico, staff there did more than just take notice.

Though the pup was skittish at first, showing signs of mistreatment, they worked to gain his trust.





"We fed him, bathed him and got him vaccinated," Gerardo Aguilar, the station's owner, told The Dodo. "We adopted him. Now he lives here, and is cared for by all the workers."

The staff named their new canine colleague Randy but little could anyone have guessed the heroic way that sweet pup would repay them for their kindness.


One evening this week, two armed robbers arrived at the station and demanded the attendant on duty to open up the office where money is kept. They began to assault the worker, punching him and knocking him to the ground.

But he wasn't outnumbered for long.

1. Thanks for posting this.

In this time of desperation for our country we need to see stories like this to remind us that the vast majority of folks are good and kind; and that their goodness and kindness often gets repaid when least expected.

That thing currently infesting the White House is, though.

5. Please, please!

Please, someone, give Randy a good toenail clipping! Toenails visible are *way* too long!

Otherwise, great article!
