Something happened to a family in Minnesota that completely turned their lives upside down, and not in a good way.
Two years ago, they adopted Joy, a pit bull mix, from an animal shelter. Though he was well-liked by all members of the family, Emilly, age 6, and Jonas, age 10, got along the best.
The dog and the kids were together all the time. They spent the entire day playing, going for walks, and sleeping in the same bed.
One evening, Jonas informed his family that he planned to take a bath before returning home.
The remaining family members remained in the backyard. The mother of the child briefly heard some odd noises.
When she entered the house, she realized the sounds were coming from upstairs.
She could hear the family dog Joy barking as she climbed the stairs.
When the woman entered the bathroom, Jonas was in the bathtub dozing off with his feet hanging over the side. Joy pulled on his hands or hair to liberate him.
