Woman sexually harassed by boss saved by dog, proving animals are in fact better than humans

Jade Hayden

There is only one Good Boy in this story and it is not the boss, OK?

Well, actually, the dog is a girl but whatever – still a solid animal who should very much be rewarded for her behaviour.

The very large Cane Corso was hanging around the house of her owner while the unnamed harassment victim was working on renovating one of her dad’s client’s kitchens.

The woman said that after working there for a few days, she noticed that the client wasn’t exactly treating her the way people tend to treat those they work with.

She told Bored Panda:

“My boss is a man who always gives hugs to ANYONE he greets. Male, female, child. So I didn’t think anything weird of it until I started to feel his hand brushing against my thighs, my hips, my lower back.

“Then it got to the point where he wouldn’t let me go from a hug and hold me in place.”

Yeah, definitely not alright.

One of the days, the woman said that it was just her and the client, when he started advancing towards her saying he was going to “tickle” her.

She said that she panicked and called the dog’s name – along with something along the lines of “help me” or “protect me.”

And, despite the fact that the dog wasn’t even her dog, she did protect her.

“The dog got up and stood guard growling and barking at him,” she said. “He was surprised but also laughing and told me to make her stand down and reward her by saying ‘good girl’.”

“My boss then walked away and didn’t touch me for the rest of the time I was there.”

In an ideal world, the client would have simply realised his behaviour was inappropriate and generally horrific, but sure until we get to that day – at least we’ll always have dogs.
