Isis, a two-year-old pit bull, jumped into action when her owner, Jamie Kraczkowski of Hazel Park, Michigan, was being physically attacked by her former boyfriend earlier this month. Isis successfully scared the man away and even managed to leave the man with a bite to remember her by, but she is not being properly rewarded for her good deed by the city officials, reported My Fox Detroit News.
The man accused of attacking Kraczkowski, Jamie Dopke, turned himself into the authorities after the violent incident, and he visited a doctor to get stitches in his wounded leg – he was also charged with domestic violence and ordered to stay away from his ex-girlfriend. But the hero dog, who came to the attention of the local officials because of the abusive situation, has been quarantined at her home and ordered out of town due to a breed ban which is in place.
According to Tuesday’s My Fox Detroit, members of Michigan’s Political Action Committee for Animals are trying to convince city officials to repeal the pit bull ban…something which would allow Isis to stay with, and continue to protect, her owner.
Courtney Protz-Sanders, with Michigan’s Political Action Committee for Animals, commented on Isis’ heroic actions:
“Had the dog not done its job, Jamie could have been more seriously injured or, God forbid, not even with us anymore,”
According to a post on the Michigan Political Action Committee’s Facebook page on Thursday, Jamie was able to raise enough money to move out of Hazel Park with her heroic companion.
