    Rottweiler honoured for stopping Coventry sex attacker

    A two-year-old Rottweiler has been recognised for his bravery after he saved a woman from a sex attacker.

    The dog, named Jake, chased off the man as he molested a woman on Hearsall Common, Coventry, in July 2009.

    Jake, who stood guard over the victim until police arrived, received his honour at an RSPCA event in Shrewsbury.

    The attacker was convicted of serious sexual assault and jailed for four years.

    Jake, who was honoured at the Prostar Stadium at an RSPCA conference on Saturday, was nominated by police for the bravery award and medallion after the incident.

        Dogs should never be judged simply by their breed, and Jake certainly proves this point”

    End Quote Glenn Mayoll RSPCA Coventry Animal Centre

    Det Con Clive Leftwich, from Coventry police station, said: “From our point of view Jake the Rottweiler stopped a serious sexual assault from becoming even worse.”

    Liz Maxted-Bluck, who rescued Jake from an RSPCA home in December 2008, said: “He is such a lovely natured dog and is very nosey so I think that was why he went to investigate that day when he heard the screams.

    “After I called the police, he stayed alert and close to us like he was guarding us.

    “It is brilliant that he is receiving this award from the RSPCA, I am really proud.”

    Glenn Mayoll, manager of RSPCA Coventry Animal Centre, said it was “immensely proud” of Jake.

    He added: “This story just goes to show that a rescue dog can be a great addition to any family.”
