Has your dog ever protected you when you were in serious danger or attacked by someone else? What was it like?

I'm interested in stories about dogs defending or protecting their owners from harm, mainly physical assault.
There are breeds that are experts at rescue, retrieval, etc., but what about when your average house dog kicks into high gear to protect its owner?
I guess the scenario I have in mind is someone being mugged or assaulted, and how the dog may have tried to help, whether successful or not.
I'm new to dog ownership, and love it, but it'd be nice to know that my 50-pound furball has my back when I take her on walks at night.
