Pitbulls can be heroes, too

DOGS have always been our favorite heroes in the animal kingdom.

Stories of their loyalty and love for their masters never fail to arouse interest.

Consider Maya, 2008 Dog of the Year awardee. Maya courageously saved its master, Angela Marcelino, from a vicious male attacker. The pitbull’s act of bravery earned praise from the Animal Miracle Foundation, which stated that “the pitbull breed can be hero dogs just like any other breed.”

Meanwhile, meet Moti, 2007’s Dog of the Year winner.

The five-year old German Shepherd literally took a bullet for his human family. The story goes that a masked intruder entered the household of the Patel family. Moti saw him. He quickly jumped at the man, barking furiously. The gunman turned equally furious and shot at the angry pooch. Then, he ran off without harming any family member.

Luckily, the furry hero survived the attack on his life.
