Thankfully, though, God sent him a furry guardian angel in the form of a stray pit bull!
Missing Boy Found By Stranger
A Good Samaritan was out walking her dogs at 8 a.m. when she noticed the shoeless little boy and the pit bull walking beside him. The tiny tot was still in his pajamas and it appeared as if the pit bull was protecting him.
"He looked well taken care of, he was very neat, very clean; he just didn't have the shoes on," the kind woman, who asked to remain anonymous, explained.
The woman didn’t know why the child was out all alone. But she was determined to make sure the missing boy found his way home safely.

The Good Samaritan started going door-to-door with the little boy, hoping to find his parents. But no one who answered recognized the toddler.
Eventually, Kh'amorion Taylor’s dad spotted a photo of his missing son on social media, which quickly led to their reunion. And after the missing boy found his dad, he kept repeating one word: “puppy”.
The toddler clearly took a liking to his furry guardian angel. And according to the local news outlet, the St. Louis Police Department is considering adopting the heroic pit bull.
It Takes A Village
Pit bulls can so often get a bad rap. But this 4-legged hero shows why you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. The pup didn’t know Kh'amorion Taylor. But he could sense the little boy needed protecting. And that’s what he did.
Thank God this missing boy was found before anything bad could happen. The happy ending to this story is all because of the stray pit bull who stayed by his side and the kind-hearted stranger who went above and beyond.
And the Good Samaritan hopes more people will step in to help when called to do so.
“Because it takes a village and children, especially, are innocent," she said. “It is important that we stick together, that we help each other, that we go back to the things that our grandparents and their community used to do. That we build a sense of unity.”
