NYC Held A Glamorous Party For A Pit Bull Puppy That Saved A Teen From Rape
January 27, 2017
Every dog gets his day, and Thursday a pit bull puppy named Apollo, credited with saving a teenage girl from being raped in Brooklyn, got his.
The 5-month-old pup rode in a limo and was ushered up to the penthouse floor of the Hotel Pennsylvania for a very special ceremony Thursday afternoon honoring his bravery.

Apollo literally took a bite out of crime last week when he stopped a stranger who was trying to sexually assault his owner’s girlfriend.
Maya Fairweather, 18, was walking Apollo in the park when the attacker pushed her to the ground and tried to pull her pants down.
The pup turned protective and intervened, chomping down on the suspect’s leg while Fairweather ran away.
“He was all happy, like he didn’t know what he did, he was just all happy he wanted to run,” Fairweather said. “I’ll always love Apollo.”
During a special reception at Hotel Pennsylvania in Manhattan, Apollo received a hero’s welcome and was showered with gifts and a special cake.
