Bless this sweet dog.
Kh’amorion Taylor is an average little guy when it comes to toddlers. However, something extraordinary happened to him and he's going viral for all the best reasons. The little boy was found wandering the streets of St. Louis, Missouri with a protective large stray pit bull by his side. Fox 2 reports that the little boy spent the morning of October 1st walking through the city's streets in his PJs after he managed to somehow get out of his dad's home on his own. A female neighbor told Fox 2 that she first spotted Kh’amorion at 8:00 a.m. and she was astonished by what appeared to be a situation where a pit bull was guarding the barefoot child.
"He looked well taken care of, he was very neat, very clean; he just didn’t have the shoes on," the woman, who wants to remain anonymous, told the news outlet. The problem was, no one knew who the little boy was. So for the next few hours, the neighbor knocked on doors up and down the street trying to find out who Kh’amorion belonged to. She got no answers. No one recognized the child. Eventually, Taylor's dad recognized his little boy on a social media post and was able to reunite with him because of his neighbor's intervention. Fortunately, the little boy had a woman and a big dog on his side.
"It is important that we stick together, that we help each other, that we go back to the things that our grandparents and their community used to do," she told FOX 2. "That we build a sense of unity." The news outlet says that Kh’amorion kept calling the dog "Puppy" once he was back with his dad.
This story may have a happy ending. The St. Louis Police Department is considering adopting him. Pit bulls have a nasty reputation and it's often undeserved. Mean dogs are bred, not born. We hope this dog gets a loving forever home. He deserves it. Watch the news video about this story below.
