Two Women Awoke To Find Their Giant Mastiff Pinning Down A Man In Their Living Room

Lynn Sarvar and her roommate live together in a home, but are lucky enough to have a 150-pound Mastiff named Benton as their personal guard dog.

For two women, it’s important that they have extra security — and that point was proven one frightening New Year’s Day.

When the two women woke up the morning after New Year’s Eve, they found a terrifying surprise in their living room. Benton was on his bed on the floor…but he was lying on top of a complete stranger.

The person underneath the Mastiff was a man, passed out.

Apparently, after attending a  New Year’s Eve party the night before, the man drunkenly wandered into their home. The women had a sliding door that was unlocked overnight, allowing the stranger to enter their townhouse.

The man passed out on the dog’s twin mattress on the floor, so the protective Benton pinned him down until his owner woke up.

When Lynn first saw the scene in the living room, she thought the man was her son. As she approached him, she was horrified to realize it was a stranger.

The two women were too frightened to wake up the unconscious intruder, so they grabbed knives from the kitchen and dialed 9-1-1.

The police responded immediately and arrived on the scene. Apparently, the man lived a few doors down from the women and mistakenly entered their home while he was drunk.

Lynn and her roommate decided not to press charges, but were so thankful that Benton was there to keep the stranger in check while they slept.

Dogs have an incredible intuition when it comes to protecting their family. If Benton wouldn’t have been there to act as a buffer between the drunk man and the women, who knows what might have happened!
