A pregnant Kasha Marie Weston and Aryan Salhi were attacked in their home by a group of knife wielding thugs and saved by the heroic actions of their Rottweiler, Rocky.
The two were in bed when they heard a loud banging on the door, Rocky ran to the noise, barking like mad. They were worried at how loud Rocky was barking so they shut him in the bathroom. Once Kasha got to the door, she couldn’t see anything through the peephole, so she opened the door slowly.
This is when 4 men burst through the door and shouted, “Where’s the money?” The men caught them completely off guard. One dragged Kasha into the living room by the arm and told her to “Shut up,” and held a knife to her throat.
The other three men were raining blows on Aryan, Kasha told them to leave and that she was pregnant, the men didn’t care and continued to beat Aryan down.
At this point, Rocky burst out of the bathroom and bared his teeth at the attackers, terrifying them into retreat. The four men fled but Rocky and Aryan were on their tails. They caught one of the men and held him for the police; he later got 10 years in prison!
“It was like he knew something was wrong”
After the attack, Rocky wouldn’t leave Kasha’s side, he would even nudge her baby bump gently with his nose, “It was as if he was telling the baby not to worry either.” For the rest of her pregnancy, she didn’t leave the house without Rocky. She couldn’t stop worrying about the baby.
Aryan Junior was born and Rocky was one of the happiest dogs you’ve ever seen. He would watch over him when he slept in his cot, stand guard and growl if strangers got too close.
“We called him Aryan’s big brother.”
Kasha and Aryan still have no idea why they were targeted and the police still haven’t caught the other three men, but the family isn’t worried, “With Rocky with us, I know we don’t have to worry.”
“He’ll never let any harm come to us.”
