A golden retriever was definitely its owner's best friend early Tuesday morning when it scared off a man who was sexually assaulting its owner!
The 36-year-old Madison woman had taken her pet to the off-leash dog exercise area in the park. While the dog was running around the park, she heard something behind her.
"The next thing she knew, a man reeking of alcohol had his arms around her and was grabbing at her chest," said Madison police spokesman.
The woman screamed and the golden retriever came running.
The dog knew its owner was in trouble and came growling, barking and gnashing its teeth.
The attacker fled, and hopefully ran off a cliff.
