Last Thursday a family from Chesterfield, Virginia arrived at their home to discover a horrifying scene. As the family entered the house they discovered a bloody mess that left splatters and stains across the walls and floors.
Tristan Murrin told KXAN he was the first to walk in the door, only to find a pretty grisly situation.
"We didn't see anything wrong nothing at the front door," said Murrin. The family told reporters that as they entered their home, they could see trails of blood leading upstairs.
"We noticed something when we walked in, and when I walked with my mother and there is blood spots on the ground, we looked upstairs and you see trails of blood coming from upstairs going all the way down," added Murrin.
The family told KXAN they figured an intruder must have broken into their home without knowing about the family's German Shepherd, who Murrin describes as "a pretty big dog." By the time the family got home, the intruder had already fled the scene.
According to the report, the family claimed that their neighborhood had recently experienced a rash of break-ins. But luckily for this family, nothing was stolen from their home.
"I think the dog did its job," Murrin said. "He knew that someone was not supposed to be in my house and no one was home and he knows that he wasn't supposed to be in there and he was doing something that he wasn't supposed to be doing and so he knew to act upon it."
Despite having obviously attacked the unwelcome intruder, Murrin told reporters that the family dog hasn't shown an aggressive nature before.
"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," he said.
Fortunately, the dog was not injured and the only real expense to the family will be carpet cleaner and maybe a new coat of paint.
