Out of nowhere, a black dog starts charging toward the young pal of Tank at lightning speed with the aim of pushing him over and attacking him. Sensing danger, Tank, the quick-witted dog pushes the young boy away from the dog before shielding him from the charging dog, reported New York Post.

While confronting the neighbor’s dog, Tank snaps at the aggressive animal and chases him away until the young boy is safe and out of any danger. Tank turns around to keep a check on his young friend’s safety. The owner of the attacking dog is seen racing to the scene to get a hold of his unleashed pet dog. After Tank made sure that the would-be attacker was at a safe distance from his owner, he walks over to the boy's mother who picks up her son and hugs him. However, it wasn't just Tank who rushed to help the boy but also the family’s other dog, a pit bull.
