More heroism of dogs


They say that of people.

What they lack in size, they make up for attitude.

It is the same way with dogs.

Smaller dogs are found to display an attitude that tries to make up what they lack in size.

A dog named Zoey is proof to this. A five pound chihuahua from Colorado, Zoey made headlines in 2007 for rescuing a one year old child from an approaching three foot rattlesnake.

When the snake refused to back off, Zoey attacked him but he sustained a small wound from a snakebite above her eye.

Zoey recovered from the snake bite. The snake was eventually killed by the dog’s owner.

This is the story of a labrador named Katrina.

The ironically named black labrador saved a drowning man before rising flood waters claimed his life. The dog, who was later rescued herself by rescue teams, was honored at that year’s Genesis Awards with a standing ovation.
