A barking dog woke a homeowner out of his early morning sleep Wednesday. When he grabbed his gun and went to check, he found a naked man choking the family pet.
When the victim tried to intercede, the culprit quickly turned around and began biting the man, according to Miami Police.
Fearing for his life, the victim shot the man, while family members called police.
The culprit continued to fight with officers who arrived on the scene.
The subject finally was taken into custody and transported to Jackson Memorial Hospitals Ryder Trauma Center to be treated for a gunshot wound.
The victim was treated for his injuries.
Police charged the man, who refused to give his name, with burglary with an assault, resisting arrest with violence, lewd and lascivious behavior and animal cruelty.
