Bailey, McGuire’s dog, aided in the fight against the assailant. According to her sister, Jeriline Brady-McGinnis.
“I’m glad she’s such a strong woman because she’s such a physical person.” who takes excellent care of herself.” There is no one nicer in the world. She is a woman who would go to any length for anyone. This woman doesn’t see colour. She sees people, and for something like this to happen to her,” Brady-McGinnis said.
