A Southbridge woman is hailing her 5-year-old pit bull as a hero after the dog was stabbed multiple times while protecting her from an enraged boyfriend wielding a 12-inch serrated knife.

“She’s my hero,” Marie Wells, 31, said of Princess, who is hospitalized on the grounds of the Tufts University Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine. “I was not injured thanks to Princess.”

Wells said Princess sustained three major stab wounds, including a six-inch laceration and others that nearly went down to the bone. She said Princess began nipping at her boyfriend, Eric Reyes, 30, while the couple were arguing at 1 a.m. Wednesday in their apartment.

“She did not attack him,” Wells said. “She was in front of me trying to protect me.”

Reyes is being held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing Monday in Dudley District Court, said Timothy Connolly, a spokesman for Worcester District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr.
