When two pitbulls rushed through the hole of a chain linked fence and attacked an 11-year-old boy and his 5-year-old sister in Dublin, Ga., big brother took charge.

Scroll down for video:

According to 13 WMAZ-TV, Maleik Carr (pictured) and his sister Jalia walk through a backyard along the fence to get to the school bus stop each day. But on Monday morning, they were met by the two angry dogs.

“The brown and white dog ran to the other side, jumped out of the fence and the black one did too, and they started snapping at Jalia. So I ran over there started kicking them away from her, and they bit me. And I told Jalia to run,” says Maleik.

She dashed across the street as her big bro bravely battled the two pitbulls. When they started biting on his legs, he took his sister’s toy chair and began beating them with it. He battled them long enough to hop over his own fence where his sister met and then rushed him to the hospital.

    Thank the Lord, both children survived these Pit Bulls’ attacks. Fighting off one Pit Bull is a miracle in itself but to fight off two Pit Bulls is unexplainable. I believe Divine Intervention gave him the strength to fight both dogs and run fast enough to get away. Most run-ins with Pit Bulls have a different ending, even when it’s an adult. The brother is hero who protected his little sister…THAT’S LOVE!

    I’m so happy they’re both alive. It’s very heroic and sweet for him to be so protective of his family. His parents must be so proud and thankful. Georgia needs to tighten up on their laws regarding animal sheltering requirements and regulation. Most states have speciic guidelines for pit bulls and their enclosures and the owners of these dogs clearly were not up to regulation.

    So proud of the family values shown in this family and dad it’s okay to cry in front of your son – you’re teaching him what compassion and love is – sometimes it makes you cry.
