CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) A Chesterfield family recently opened their door to find a scene from a horror film. There was blood covering the walls and floors of their home.
The family said there have been several break-ins recently in the Ashbrooke neighborhood where they live. The family came home Thursday night to find they too had been the victim of a break in. They say thanks to a family pet, the would-be robber got away with nothing. In fact, he was lucky to get away with his life.
We didnt see anything wrong nothing at the front door, said Tristan Murrin, the person who was first to find the gruesome scene.
But once they were greeted by their family dog, they knew something was very wrong.
We noticed something when we walked in, when I walked in with my mother and there is blood spots on the ground, we looked up stairs and you see trails of blood coming from up stairs going all the way down, said Murrin.
The entire upstairs covered in blood. Someone had broken in not knowing the familys guard dog was inside, that intruder quickly realized they picked the wrong home.
My dog, hes a pretty big dog, its a larger German shepherd, said Murrin.
Murrin says his dog has never been aggressive before, in fact, home videos show the same dog laying down and playing with a young child.
He plays with the kids, the cul-de-sac knows him. They know him as big dog, the community loves him, the kids come up to him and want to touch him and play with him, said Murrin.
Murrin says nothing was stolen, and that he is thankful his dog was not hurt, but also happy that the dog stood his ground.
I think the dog did its job. He knew that someone was not supposed to be in my house and no one was home and he knows that he wasnt supposed to be in there and he was doing something that he wasnt supposed to be doing and so he knew to act upon it, said Murrin.
The family suspects the intruder needed serious medical attention due to the loss of blood that was seen in the home. They are hoping by sharing their story the person will be caught.
Police did respond to the scene and say they are investigating. No one has been arrested but if you have any information you are asked to call Crime Stoppers.
Should be some fingerprints in all that happy mess.
LOL. Good dog! My grandmother had a Shepard who attacked her own son, who was living with her, when he came home late one night. Very protective dogs....
Dog is a hero.
There are so few admired and appreciated heroic animals.
I bet he is a member of the family.
We have a Maine Coon Cat that is our sentinel and guardian. Really.
Awful thoughtful of them..........
Man’s best friend.
That why Mohammedans hate them.
‘happy that the dog stood his ground.’
It appears the dog did a little more than merely stand his ground.
My dogs (RIP) would have yawned and went back to sleep.
Fantastic Dog. I have shepards. No one comes in. I leave the doors un;locked most of the time.
Good doggie needs a steak or two for dinner.
A hero. I do my best to make sure that my dogs never have to defend me or our home, but if it comes to that, I know that they will.
Check the local hospitals that night to see who went in for a dog bite wound & you have your scumbag.
Intruder blood and not loyal dog blood, I hope.
Maine Coon Cats are remarkable.
My grandfather would tell about their little dog bringing in a jeans backside. They never did find out who it belonged to.
Maybe with fingers still attached................
