If you’re skeptical about the courage of dogs and their determination to save loved ones in danger, get ready to change your mind.
These are the stories of dogs which faced snakes, snow storms, bullets and car accidents, all in order to save another human’s life.
These selfless canines put themselves in harm’s way for the benefit of humans. Some are big, some are small, but all are man’s best friend.
Golden retrievers are well-known for their kind and friendly behavior, but 7-year-old Brutis went beyond that. Back in 2004, this dog actually snatched a coral snake as it was making its way to a young child.
Although he suffered a near-deadly bite in the process, heroic Brutis managed to save the child. After the incident he was taken to Los Angeles to receive the National Hero Dog Award.
Said the committee who awarded the medal, “when we give an award like this, we’re looking for something extra, something that would make people wonder why a dog would do what he did.”
