A breathtaking video has circulated online showing a dog shielding its owners' 6-year-old son from an attack by a neighbor's dog that was charging right at him.
In the first few seconds of the clip, the German Shepherd named Tank is seen playing with a young child in front of their Florida home. Both the dog and child were playing peacefully.
However, a dark dog suddenly horrifyingly dashes fast toward them from the upper right corner of the screen, and Tank immediately goes into defense mode.
