This is Blue, the hero dog who was stabbed defending his owner during an attempted robbery in a residential section of Kansas City. According to owner Aubrey Christopher at about 10 p.m. he checked his porch after Blue started growling. Three men were outside, two were armed, one carrying a knife, the other a gun. Christopher sought refuge but Blue burst through the screen door to attack the would-be assailants. When Christopher returned he found his dog bleeding profusely from the neck after having been stabbed. Members of the Kansas City Police Department helped Christopher take Blue to Union Hill Animal Hospital where he was treated. They also contacted Frankie's Friends to seek assistance for paying the hospital bills that totaled $600. Looking for a charity to make a donation? Consider making a donation in Blue's name.
