A Texas family says a beagle saved an 11-year-old girl from being abducted and now authorities are looking for the suspect. 

The 11-year-old in the Pasadena neighborhood of Willow Oaks had a scary situation. She saw a man looking at her strangely, and then got out of the car and grabbed her. 

While she was struggling for her life, her 15-pound beagle mix named Ray saved the day. 

"The dog was like 'uh-uh, this is not any regular person' so yeah he went for a bite in the leg and that was the only way for her to free herself," said Bianca Hernandez, the victim's sister. 

Surveillance cameras caught the would-be child abductor leaving the complex Sunday at about 9:30 a.m. 

"At this point, they know what they're looking for. And we've just got to keep a close eye on the little ones," said Alan Aguilar, the victim's uncle.
