The boy, who is not being identified, was upstairs while his mother went to pick up his siblings from school around 5 p.m. when the burglar entered the front door, according to the Linconl Journal Star

The boy came downstairs thinking his mother had returned, only to lock eyes with the intruder. 

“He started chasing me upstairs and I called my dog down and they started to fight when my dog got downstairs," the boy told KLKN

That’s when Baby Girl, the family’s pit bull, sprang into action. She jumped between the boy and the burglar, who ran from the house without taking anything, according to KLKN.

"The dude pulled the blinds down on my dog's head and then ran away and shut the door," the boy told KLKN

Baby Girl was treated to a lollipop for her heroic actions.
