Hero Stopped a Man Passing By For Help

On a chilly night, Curtis Dahl was walking in a field of mud and grass. Hero charged Curtis and got a bit too personal with his pooch. Though Curtis ended up with a few scratches and stitches, he soon learned Hero’s heart was in the right place. The pup was just living up to his name!

As it turns out, Hero was acting in self-defense and trying to get help for his beloved owner. He was protecting his pack at all costs. Curtis and the authorities just didn’t realize this yet.

As the authorities arrived, they heard more than just barks. They heard a cry for help coming from a nearby ditch. There, nestled in the cold, was a man needing rescue. It was Hero’s 61-year-old owner. And Hero had been there, standing tall as his guardian angel, keeping danger at bay.
