25 Heroic Dogs

The Dog Guide:

“People have always seemed to have a soft spot for heroic dogs. Whether it’s TV classics like Lassie or heart-warming family films like Homeward Bound, the idea of dogs rescuing their human masters (or even complete strangers) captures our love and affection as few other things do. So it’s only natural to love hearing about dogs who save people in real life! Here are 25 true accounts of dogs who saved people from perilous circumstances.”

This is a terrific collection photographs and accounts of heroic action by dogs. Each includes a brief paragraph describing some action few humans would take.
