Georgia Bradley, a 25-year-old student at Plymouth University in England, was vacationing in Crete, Greece, when a stray dog rescued her from a terrifying encounter.

Two men approached her while she was at a secluded beach, asking her if she wanted to grab a drink. After she refused, one of the men forcefully grabbed her by the arm.

The dog jumped in before the men were able to attack Bradley, barking and causing them to run away.

Bradley told the Plymouth Herald, "She saved me. She must have noticed something was wrong." As she walked back to her apartment, she recalls that the dog finally let her pet her. Bradley said:

Two weeks later, Bradley spent thousands of dollars and traveled 6,000 miles to go back to Greece and adopt the dog. Pepper was brought to a vet where she was microchipped, wormed with a rabies shot and given a pet passport.

"It has been such a crazy journey. But I am over the moon. Pepper has settled in brilliantly," Bradley said.

This isn't the first time a dog has saved someone from an attacker. See the video below:
