While the driver involved in this tragic hit and run is yet to be found, the hero of this story has been found.

According to WWMT,

Dave Badham says his heroic dog Piper risked her life to save his son but then took off after the hit-and-run crash. But in a miraculous twist of events Piper showed up on the doorstep of her previous owners.

 

Piper is more than just part of the family.  This gorgeous red nose pitbull shielded the 4 year old boy from being directly run over by the tire of the mini van.  The father believes his son would not be alive today had it not been for Piper.

Here's the full video of the horrific accident from Wood TV's YouTube Page.
