A Wonderful Dog Story....


April 29, 2007 -- Tiny terrier sacrifices himself to save children (AP News, Australia)

On a Sunday afternoon in Manaia, a small town in New Zealand, five kids played with the neighbour's Jack Russell terrier, George, as they returned from the candy store. Two large, aggressive dogs that neighbours said had been trained to kill suddenly attacked the group. Just 30 centimetres tall, George threw himself at the vicious dogs until help arrived. "George went for them; it's what he would do," his owner, Alan Gay, said later. The kids escaped unharmed, but the little pooch who stood like a giant was so severely injured he had to be euthanized. George was posthumously awarded the PDSA Gold Medal, a British honour recognizing bravery, and a Vietnam war vet mailed his Purple Heart to George's home. A bronze statue of George was later erected: big honours befitting a tiny hero.
