Kh’amorion Taylor went missing on the morning of October 1.
The child, Kh’amorion Taylor, had walked out of his father’s home barefoot and in his pajamas. He had then begun wandering around, walking through the streets of the neighborhood. Thankfully, the little boy – and his guardian pit bull – had been spotted by a neighbor while she was walking her own two dogs. The woman quickly took action and began knocking on all the doors in the neighborhood to try and locate the child’s parents. While FOX 2 reported that nobody was able to identify or recognize the child, Taylor’s father had eventually seen a social media post in which his son was featured. It was then that he had rushed to reunite with his son.
The little boy had been guarded by a stray pit bull.
When Taylor was found, he was seen walking around with what was presumed to be his pet dog. However, in reality, the large pit bull which accompanied him was a stray dog who was acting as a guard for the toddler. Moreover, according to FOX 2, while Taylor was being reunited with his father, he had repeatedly cried “puppy”; one can only infer that he was probably trying to express his gratitude. After hearing about the pit bull’s heroic actions, St. Louis police have reportedly considered adopting him.
