A & # 39; Heroes & # 39; family nebula chased away a group of four machete-wielding intruders who opened the door to their family's home.
When the four-headed father Paul Davis in Birmingham was attacked by the hooded thugs, his devoted Staffordshire bull terrier Macey did not think twice about risking her life for her family.
CCTV footage shows a group of men looking over the house and looking into the windows before rushing forward to break the door.
The door is lowered with two quick kicks and a second man comes in and pulls out a machete.
But seven-year-old Macey and French bulldog Bruce, three, don't want to let them in freely.
A & # 39; Heroes & # 39; family nebula chased away a group of four machete-wielding invaders after the gang broke into a house in Birmingham
When the four-headed father Paul Davis' house was attacked by the hooded thugs, his devoted Staffordshire bull terrier Macey (pictured) did not think twice about risking her life for her family
Mr. Davis lives with his fiancee Jenna Byrne (pictured together), also 36, and his three daughters
With two quick kicks, the door is shut down and a second man comes in and pulls out a machete (picture)
The man pulls out of the house when he realizes the dogs are there before throwing his terrible weapon at Bruce.
Macey struggles and chases him outside before running after the men fleeing fear.
Poor Bruce had a cut on his back in the attack and Macey was kicked while chasing the men on the street.
36-year-old mechanic Davis had no idea what was going on when the noise of the attack woke him up in the middle of the night on July 30.

But when he jumped out of bed to look, the knock was over and Paul spotted his loyal puppy staring at his window from the driveway below.
Mr. Davis, who lives with his 36-year-old fiancée Jenna Byrne and his three daughters, said: “Macey is our absolute hero.
"I always asked what she would do if we were attacked, but she shot past me.
& # 39; It was as if she had looked at me and decided, "Papa doesn't go, I am". She risked her life for us.
“I think she saved my life that night, and probably that of Jenna and the girls. When I saw her sitting there and looked up at the bedroom like "I have her dad" I was overwhelmed.
& # 39; She has had many goodies. She slept in bed with me last night, we bought her a dog biscuit and a bottle of dog beer.
“She'll keep her for the rest of her life. We can never pay her back for what she did. & # 39;
Mr. Davis believes the house was targeted because of the Land Rover driveway, but due to Macey's fearless intervention, the only damage done to the family home was a broken front door and broken brickwork.

While fleeing, the perpetrators dented the wing mirror of a mobility vehicle that was used to transport the youngest daughter, Klara, seven.
Not much physical damage may be done to the house, but Mr. Davis and his girls Kayli, 15, Kortney, 12, and Klara are all emotionally affected by the attack.
17-year-old son Jay was out of the house when the incident happened.
Mr. Davis said: “We are all still very confused. The girls don't want to stay in the house and that's the hardest part.
“What really concerns me is how this affects and will continue to affect my children. Kortney stayed with my mother for the time being. Kayli couldn't sleep.
"I haven't eaten since then. My belly growls, but I'm not hungry.
"I just don't want this to happen to other families. They tried a few more houses on our street, one on our side of the street and one on the opposite side.
Mr. Davis pampered his brave puppies with a dog biscuit that said "heroes" along with ice cream and dog beer
“We all slept soundly and I had to wake up at the first kick. I heard the end, but just thought it was a big bang.
So the first reaction I looked out of the window and all I saw was this shiny machete in the air. I could only think that I had to take care of Jenna and the girls.
"I felt a little better when I knew the girls were locked in their rooms, but then I realized I had no idea what the dirt bags would do.
"I knew I had seen some of them, so I was only three steps from the stairs and stayed there for a minute, but it felt so much louder.
“When I didn't hear a knock downstairs, I looked out the window to see if they were still outside. I couldn't see anything even when I looked up and down the street.
Jenna had a panic attack and Kayli was on the phone for an ambulance.
“Bruce must have run down the stairs first. He was hit right with the knife and has a cut on the back.
"Macey moves so fast that I don't think they hit her with the machete, but they kicked her across the street."
Despite the emotional impact, Mr. Davis and his family know that Macey will always be ready to protect them.
Ms. Byrne said, "I love the fact that you can see Macey looking up at the window proudly, like" I did it, Dad, I got rid of her ".
“The other angle is great because you can see her chasing her away. Even something so terrible was pretty funny seeing her grabbing her ankles.
“Staffies get a lot of stick these days and it can be difficult because people try to make them a tyrant breed.
"It was just incredible to see what she did for us. Sitting outside and waiting to come back in shows only how good she is as a dog.
“She is such a big part of our family and just a really nice dog with the children. She wouldn't bite anyone even if we told her.
"There is no education for her to do what she did, it was just her natural instinct to protect us."
