A Family’s Rat Terrier Rescues Their Little Girl By Attacking The Man Trying To Kidnap Her.

“It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog”, Mark Twain told us all those years ago and a little rat terrier in Atlanta has proved him right yet again.

An Atlanta family’s tiny rat terrier saved their little girl from being abducted. Jennifer Jones says that daughter was walking the unnamed dog before school started on Thursday when she was almost snatched.

An unidentified man had pulled up a white pickup truck next to her and got out of it, grabbing at the girl’s wrist. But he didn’t expect the rat terrier’s fierce protection. (Scroll down for the video.)

Cobb County Police Sgt. Dana Pierce said:

The victim’s dog bit at his ankle causing him to release her. It was at that moment that the victim was able to get away from him.

The girl later described the man to the police and a forensic sketch artist was able to draw up his portrait. Neighbor Rebecca Walker said:

There’s always children going up and down this street without parents or anything, and it’s really scary that it’s happening like that.

Because the man attacked children so close to the school, police say it is extremely important to find him.

The man is reported to be middle-aged with a medium build, about 5-foot-ten. He was wearing a royal blue hoodie and dark cap with a green symbol, according to WSB Radio.

While the attacker is still at large, the Jones family at least knows they have one brave dog they can rely on. Jones told reporters:

My hero. My daughter’s hero.
