PASADENA (1080 KRLD) - Police say an 11-year-old's girl dog saved her from being kidnapped this week.

Authorities in Pasadena, near Houston, say the girl was visiting relatives, when a man drove up in a dark-colored SUV, grabbed her and tried to throw her into his vehicle.  That's where the brown, black and white beagle-terrier mix named Ray comes into the story.  

Police say when Ray realized what was happening to his young owner, he sunk his teeth into the leg of the alleged kidnapper.  That allowed the girl to break loose and run to safety.

According to the Houston Chronicle, home security images show the suspect and his license plate.  Authorities are now working to track him down.  The girl and her brave little dog were not injured.
