A pit bull named Bo has returned to his West Virginia home after becoming injured for protecting his owner during a break-in, according to WCHS8. Bo was protecting his owners when two men broke into their Huntington home on Thursday May 29, 2014. The suspects hit Bo in the head with a baseball bat but then Bo went missing.

Brianna Caudelle, one of Bo's owners, looked for Bo that night and the following day but couldn't find him. Bo returned home late Friday night but not without injury. The baseball bat attack to his head left Bo blind in one eye. The eye needs to be removed.

Caudelle adopted Bo after he was rescued by Pitiful Paws Rescue Group out of Huntington. Bo was saved from euthanasia as a puppy. He had a severe skin infection, kennel cough and was infested with parasites. Pitiful Paws Rescue has offered to pay for any medical costs regarding Bo's surgery and recovery.

Police are investigating.
