On his fourth day as a foster dog, TaterTot the pit bull saved Christi Smith’s four-year-old son’s life. The pup barked and whimpered in the middle of the night as he paced between Smith and her son Peyton’s room in Minneapolis. When Smith check on Peyton, she found him incoherent and barely breathing. At the emergency room, doctors found his blood sugar levels had crashed dangerously. TaterTot’s smart move earned him a permanent home with the family.
Stitch’s cleft lip and palate has given strength to two children with the same birth defect. When the pit was six months old, his foster parent and licensed vet technician Chrissy Boyles put out word to raise money for surgeries to correct the dog’s deformities. Ashlee Rodman, mother to Sam and Lily who were both born with cleft lip and palate, saw the fundraiser and knew the pooch would help her kids through their own surgeries. Rodman says the special pit has helped her kids feel special, too. When four-year-old Sam was nervous about his surgeries, he’d look at Stitch’s Facebook page to remember that if Stitch could go through hard stuff, so could he. “I just wanted to show my kids that they are not alone,” Rodman said.
When an intruder fired a shotgun at Lefty’s owner, the pit bull jumped in the way and took a bullet for him. The dog suffered extreme injuries on her shoulder and her leg, which had to be amputated. Lefty’s heroic move was recognized by a large Facebook community: Supporters helped the family cover 100 percent of the medical costs of Lefty’s surgery, and she’s now “trotting around like she’s been a 3-legged dog her entire life,”
Elle is a hero dog and helps people overcome their fears. In 2013, this 5-year-old, sweet-faced pit was named the American Hero Dog by the American Humane Association. Elle works as a therapy dog in Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina, where she aids in teaching children about dog safety and helps people overcome their fear of dogs.
Creature and her owner, Cara Jones, were out on their routine nightly walk when Creature did something out of the ordinary: She bolted from her usual spot to find Carmen Mitchell, an elderly New Jersey woman who suffers from dementia, CBS reported. Mitchell had separated from her caretaker and lost her way for about eight hours. She was discovered about half a mile from her home, without a coat or shoes. Without Creature’s keen sense of smell and unrelenting drive, Mitchell may have been lost for much longer.
Creature is not pictured, so the photo up is find on net.
On Halloween 2013 in Richmond, Virginia, this brave K9 suffered 12 stab wounds while protecting his female owner from an attack by her abusive partner.
