Cape Town - An ordinary dog has become the hero of his family after he was shot while taking on an armed hijacker at his owner’s home.
Guluva, a “pavement special” from The Leagues near Mitchells Plain, is currently recovering at the Animal Welfare Society of South Africa in Philippi after he was shot in the face.
The bullet ripped through his mouth, cutting his tongue.
Derrick Mfengwana, 37, says Guluva saved the life of his sister’s boyfriend on 17 July.
He says it was just after 6pm when the man arrived home from work and was about to pull into the driveway when suspects pounced.
