Tracey McCoy and her blind son were at home in Oklahoma City when every parent’s worst nightmare came true.
With her home security cameras rolling in broad daylight, a man was seen creeping through a side door and entering the McCoys’ home. The intruder walked right in “as though he owned the place.”
But what the intruder didn’t know was that he was about to meet Dubai, the family’s 122-pound Great Dane mix.
Dubai is typically a very docile and friendly dog … he’s anything but vicious. In fact, he was initially sweet to the uninvited guest and allowed him to pet him and say hello.
Just as Dubai and the man were hitting it off, however, Tracey walked into the kitchen and screamed. “I looked up and came face-to-face with a stranger,” Tracey told Inside Edition.
In the blink of an eye, Dubai realized his mom was terrified by the strange man standing inside their home and went from a gentle giant to a heroic protector.
If there was any uncertainty as to how this giant dog would react to a crisis situation, Tracey now knows for sure.
