Their dog 'Bliss' saved them late Tuesday night.

Rita Rodriguez said she was in her yard with her daughters and grand daughter when the pit bull came up behind them.
Rodriguez said they tried to get the pit bull to leave, but it wouldn't.
The next thing they saw was Bliss spring into action and keep the pit bull occupied until the family could chain it to a fence and call police.
"If is weren't for Bliss protecting my family, we would have been injured ourselves," Rodriguez said.
Bliss suffered injuries to his ear and neck, but should be OK.
