"He really was a watchdog," Charles Saxton, who was there at the scene, told KOCO. "He saved her life. Saved her from getting hit."
Angel's leg was injured badly, so residents brought him to Oklahoma City Animal Welfare, where he's clearly become a staff favorite.
The shelter posted a happy update about him on their Facebook page Thursday, saying, "Angel saved the life of neighborhood kids. He will be adopted into his new home tomorrow and will get the surgery he needs to heal."
