When Osmar Persisco was approached by two armed robbers who demanded his car keys, he resisted and a bullet grazed his forehead when the would-be thieves opened fire on him. His dog, Max, was with him and leaped into action when he saw the blood.
One of the robbers ran, but Max caught the other one and attacked him. The thug shot Max three times, then also got away. Persisco credits Max with saving his life and is happy to report that he and Max should each make a full recovery.
