Protecting your children is the most important part of being a parent. It can be a tough role to play, but fortunately some families have the help of pets that are ​instinctively protective of their young. A California family can attest to that.

Surveillance cameras caught a dog attacking 4-year old Jeremy Triantafilo. Jeremy was riding his bicycle in his family’s driveway when a neighbor’s dog bit his leg without provocation. Fortunately, the Triantafilo family cat, Tara was nearby and chased the attacking dog away. Jeremy’s mother, Erika, rushed to Jeremy’s side after hearing him yell out in pain.

“I didn’t really even realize what had happened until after when my husband showed me the surveillance video,” Erika said.

Home video security systems are a crucial aspect of comprehensive family protection. As the Triantafilos can attest, capturing events on tape allows you to see what happened and understand the entirety of an unfortunate situation.
