Video: Newly Adopted Dog Saves Family from Burglar

| by Michael Allen

Lee and Elizabeth Littler of Hillsboro, Ohio recently adopted an underweight St. Bernard and named him 'Hercules,' with the plan of nursing him back to health and finding him a permanent home. However, that all changed when Hercules chased down a man who was trying to get into the basement of the Littler's home.

The burglar was able to get away, but Lee Littler has decided to keep Hercules: “I think he’s definitely earned a permanent home.” Hercules has become an international hero as his story has been broadcast all over the world.
