One dog laid on top of a stranded hiker in the Croatian mountains and saved his life by keeping him warm until help arrived. What a heroic animal!

The dog is an 8-month-old Alaskan Malamute named North, and the man that he saved is Grga Brkic. North laid on top of Grga for 13 hours after he had fallen and injured himself. There were two other hikers who had seen North and Grga on the trail, and they went to get help when they realized that Grga was hurt.

What an amazing story! And how incredible that North stayed by Grga side for 13 hours in order to save his life. "This little dog is a real miracle," said the hiker.
