Meet Randy, a formidable dog who has earned himself the reputation of “hero” in the town of Tamaulipas, Mexico.
Two years ago, Randy showed up to a gas station in the town. Because of his tattered state, the staff took immediate notice of him. He didn’t seem aggressive, just dirty, malnourished, and skittish of humans. So, over time, they worked to gain his trust. Eventually, Gerardo Aguilar, the station’s owner, decided to “adopt” Randy.
“We fed him, bathed him and got him vaccinated,” said Aguilar. “We adopted him. Now he lives here, and is cared for by all the workers.”
Last week, Randy revealed his heroic side when two armed robbers arrived at the station. They confronted the attendant on duty and demanded he open up the office where the money is stored. As The Dodo reports, they assaulted the worker, punching him and knocking him to the ground.
However, the attendant wasn’t outnumbered for long. Randy, who sleeps in the station’s warehouse, heard the commotion and immediately rushed in. His ferocity drove the robbers away, and likely saved the gas station worker’s life.
Watch the dramatic footage below:
“We were surprised to see how he reacted, and of course we are proud of him,” Aguilar said. “If it weren’t for Randy, who knows how things would have ended. He shows us how grateful and happy he is with us.”
Randy isn’t beloved just for his protective nature. Customers also appreciate his friendly face. “He makes it a better experience. I always call him, and he gets in the door of my truck and brings his face to mine,” said Nuria Arellano, a frequent customer at Randy’s gas station. ”It would be wonderful if the culture changed and there were more rescued puppies at other gas stations and other stores. Let’s hope this happens one day.”
