UPDATE: Blitz, the pit bull who saved a woman from her attacker in 2009, will reunite with the woman. The woman's friend contacted WZZM 13 after seeing our story Wednesday night. The woman -- who is a domestic assault victim -- didn't want to be interviewed on television, but says she will meet Blitz and his new owner in person.

FRUITPORT, Mich. (WZZM) -- You might remember the amazing story of Blitz, a dog who saved a Holland woman from being abducted in 2009. More than seven million people have watched our story online.

Now the dog's owner wants the woman and dog reunited.

Angela Morales says she hopes enough time has passed for the woman to feel comfortable enough to contact her and meet Blitz.

The woman who was nearly abducted five years ago was being beaten and dragged across the street by her estranged husband, Steven Schumacher.

A witness could hear her screaming; when she opened her door, Blitz bolted past her and jumped on the man. He released the woman, and she ran inside to call police.

Morales now owns Blitz and says the YouTube video has many negative comments that are untrue.

"The fact this breed is looked upon so viciously, so for him to show, we're not like that. He didn't have to bite the man, he didn't have to attack the man, he didn't have to mull the man," she said.

Morales says she wants to ask the woman if she knew Blitz was coming to help her. Morales says Blitz would still remember the woman today.

She has a Facebook page, Goon Squad Bulliesand so does Blitz, Blitz Law the Hero Bully and she says the woman can reach out to her there without being identified.
