“A Northern California woman says her Chihuahua died protecting her children from two pit bulls that got into her apartment.

Mayda Estrella, of Richmond, says the family’s Chihuahua, named Manchas, jumped in between the canine invaders and her 4-year-old son Sunday. A pit bull grabbed Manchas with its jaws and carried the Chihuahua away.”

I take my dogs, a Pit Bull/German Shepherd and a Chow/Lab walking every day, and it’s not uncommon for a Chihuahua or another small dog, to come running up to my dog and barking its little head off.
 
It’s not difficult for me to believe that Manchas stood up to the two pit bulls. The 4-year-old child wasn’t harmed, but Manchas was killed by the Pit Bulls.
 
Lessons to be learned:
 
Pet owners need to keep a close eye on their animals, and nobody should ever leave the front door to his home open.
