Heroic Dogs Amazing Feats Of Courage
These will melt your heart with their stories of bravery.
Cats and dogs are our pets. They comfort us when we are down, make us laugh with their antics and generally make a household a warm and fuzzy place. Most people see animals as part of their families, but rarely do we stop and think how important they can be.
How many times have we seen a dog chasing around after a ball, then something happens and the dog turns into well, super dog?
What goes on in their minds? Is it a territorial reaction? Do these animals believe we are part of the pack or are they really thinking hey I have got to save this child?
Maybe they are all little angels in animal bodies! What do you think?
Dogs and cats are our little hero's. But sometimes dogs go above and beyond the call of duty!

She started to reach for the phone, but before she managed to get there, her Japanese Akita, Sheba, who was asleep in the kitchen, heard her distress.

A Dog Named Hero.
I have been reading and watching many videos and stories of doggy heroes, but this one actually made me cry and say Wow out loud. I had to watch the video twice, it blew me away!
The story begins when Shannon Lorio had a massive argument with her husband, and decided to go for a drive to blow off some steam. In southern Georgia the roads are long and winding and the woodlands are vast. With hardly any cars or people for hours at a time its not a good place to have an accident.
But this is exactly what happened to Shannon on that day. Where she was driving is locally known as Nascar Road, because the people drive to fast.
Losing control of her car, it veered across the road and shot down an embankment. Losing consciousness she woke to find that the top half of her body was laid on the trunk, and her lower body was sprawled over the back seat.
She was confused, in pain and continued to collapse into unconsciousness. Then suddenly a strange thing happened.
Shannon woke to feel someone or something breathing on her face. A German Shepherd had jumped up onto the vehicle and was licking her face to wipe away her blood.
She blacked out again, and when she came round she realized that she was being moved. The dog was pulling her from the car!
The dog pulled her up over 100 feet to the top of the ditch and continued to drag her across the grass towards the road. Shannon was beginning to come round more, and decided to try to stand up. The dog stood there and allowed Shannon to pull herself to her feet by hanging onto him.
Shannon then managed to flag down a car and asked the driver to phone her husband as she had had a car accident. She then passed out and woke to find herself in the hospital.
She found out that she had an intracranial hemorrhage which, left untreated could have caused death. Luckily she didn't need surgery, and recovered well.
Her life was saved by a stray dog, who came out of nowhere. Shannon was in tears as she said ' The dog did everything for me, if he hadn't have found me I wouldn't be here now, I believe, in my heart, that I would have died'.
Since then the dog has been taken into the Humane Society, and now he is being trained to be a search and rescue dog, which is very appropriate.
They Named him Hero. And search and rescue trainer Heidy Drawdy has adopted him.
The last word comes from Shannon. 'I told him, you will always be my hero'.
Any dry eyes left in the house?
