Dogs save lost toddler and woman assaulted by 2 men

Dogs truly are remarkable creatures.

Below are two true-life accounts of humans who owe their lives to heroic dogs.

(1) Homeless dog saves vacationing woman attacked by two men

The Telegraph reports, August 20, 2015, that Georgia Bradley, 25, a student at UK’s Plymouth University, and her boyfriend were vacationing in the Greek islands.

One day, Bradley decided to take a walk alone on a beach in the small town of Georgioupoli, Crete, her boyfriend at a nearby café, when she was surrounded by two aggressive men who grabbed her when she rejected their advances.

Just at that moment, a small, black dog “appeared from nowhere” and started barking at the men, scaring them off.

Bradley said: “I decided to go for a walk along the beach, and found two Greek men who kept harassing me to go out for a drink. I kept telling them I didn’t want to. Then one of them grabbed me on the arm and I didn’t know what was going to happen. I was on my own and it was a very scary and difficult situation.” Bradley said the dog must have noticed something was wrong and “saved her”. 

After the incident, the little dog followed Bradley back to her apartment. Bradley said they had an instant bond, and that she believed the dog, whom she called Pepper, was abandoned as she had seen it wandering around the town alone. She said: “Pretty much every evening we saw her around outside the bars and restaurants, trying to get the attention of the tourists. Every time we got close to her she wouldn’t let you stroke her. She was very gentle, but was too scared to let you close.”

Bradley tried to persuade a local animal shelter to take Pepper, but was unsuccessful, and eventually had to return home to Calstock, Cornwall, England. She said: “When we left to go to the airport, we looked back and Pepper was running after the car. It was heartbreaking. When I got home I couldn’t stop thinking about her so I took the soonest flight back out that I could, which was two weeks later.”

But Pepper was nowhere to be seen. Bradley spent five weeks trying to find the stray, which took two further trips to Crete. Eventually, Bradley found Pepper on the same beach where the little dog had saved the woman from the two men.

After the dog was confirmed as a stray, Bradley had Pepper microchipped, wormed with a rabies jab, and given a pet passport. Pepper had to spend 21 days in quarantine in boarding kennels but was eventually allowed to travel to Britain.

When Bradley returned to Crete for a third time to collect Pepper, she was greeted with a surprise: The kennel owner told her that Pepper, a Terrier Poodle Cross, was pregnant!

A week after arriving back in the UK, Pepper gave birth to six puppies.

Bradley said: “It has been such a crazy journey. But I am over the moon. Pepper has settled in brilliantly.”

(2) Old deaf-and-blind dog saves toddler

ABC News reports, April 20, 2018, that 3-year-old Aurora was reported missing about 3 pm on Friday after she wandered off in wet weather in the rugged bushland of her family’s rural property in Queensland’s Southern Downs, Australia.

But a search of woodlands and hills on the rural property found no trace of her.

On Saturday morning, more than 100 State Emergency Service (SES) volunteers, police and members of the public resumed the search.

At around 8 am, 15 hours after Aurora had gone missing, Leisa Bennett, Aurora’s grandmother, was calling out to the girl when she heard Aurora cry, “Grammy!”.

Bennett said she “shot up the mountain” and when she got to the top, Max, the 17-year-old deaf and partially-blind family dog, came right up to Bennett and led her straight to the girl. Bennett said Max had stayed next to Aurora all night: “She smelled of dog, she slept with the dog.” 

SES area controller Ian Phipps said Aurora was about 1½ miles from the family home: “The area around the house is quite mountainous and is very inhospitable terrain to go walking in, so she’d travelled quite a distance with her dog that was quite loyal to her. The search was actually quite hard where the volunteers and the police were, amongst the very steep slopes full of lantana and other vegetation.”

Phipps said Aurora suffered minor cuts and abrasions but was otherwise well and it was a wonderful outcome for the family and searchers. He said: “With the weather last night it’s quite lucky she is well because it was cold, it was cold and raining. She’s a very hardy young lass to survive that without any ill effects and everyone, all the volunteers are extremely happy.”

For his good work in keeping the little girl safe, Max has now been declared an honorary police dog by the Queensland Police.

Hero cat saves toddler from plunging down stairs

On October 31, 2019, one-year-old toddler Samuel León was left unattended in his filthy room or home in Bogota, Colombia.

The household pet, a Siamese cat named Gatubela, watched little Samuel as he crawled on all fours out of his crib, across the floor, and toward the a steep flight of stairs.

When the toddler got to the edge of the top of the stairwell, Gatubela sprang into action.

Like a bolt of lightning, the cat sped across the room and put her body in front of little Samuel, blocking the toddler from going further.

Gatubela first tried to move Samuel away from the stairs by grabbing the back of his neck with her mouth, as she would with kittens. Then Gatubela pounced on Samuel and pushed him away from the stairwell.

All of this was captured in a security camera’s footage.

If Gatubela had not intervened, little Samuel would surely tumble down the stairs. This remarkable cat literally saved the toddler’s life.

I had a GIF made of Gatubela’s heroic action, in case YouTube takes down the video.

President Trump broke them: Media resorts to fact-checking Trump’s honor dog meme

After it was announced that a K-9 military dog played a major role in the Special Ops raid and takedown of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, President Trump tweeted an obviously Photoshopped pic that Daily Wire created (above).

Because progressives are seriously infected with TDS and have no sense of humor, the media immediately began their investigation into President Trump’s horribly “fake” tweet. Firefighters to the rescue!

Jim Acosta at CNN made sure to let everyone know that “the dog is not at the WH.”

The New York Times went to bat to request details from the WH on the photo.

Because OrangeManBad, the DNC media tried their hardest to smear President Trump and his dastardly meme. Impeach NOW!

Ben Shapiro, from the Daily Wire, shared these tweets last night:

“So, WaPo asked my business partner, @jeremydboreing, about our Medal of Honor dog meme. His glorious response is screencapped below. Their report then suggested Jeremy refused to answer questions about the picture. Um, no. We just think you’re being f***ing insane.

“Yes, we created the meme. Yes, it is a joke. Yes, you people are also jokes. Please feel free to quote both me and Jeremy on this.”

I can’t imagine how much crazier the left can get if President Trump wins re-election.

Hero: Injured military dog cornered ISIS leader in tunnel

A K-9 military dog played a major role in the Special Ops raid and takedown of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in Syria’s northwestern Idlib province last Saturday evening, Oct. 26, 2019.

The dog is also the only soldier wounded in the raid.

Russ Read reports for the Washington Examiner:

The dog, whose name and breed remain unknown, chased Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi into a tunnel and cornered him. With no place to go, the terrorist leader blew himself up along with three of his children, who he was using as human shields. The dog’s injuries highlighted the importance of military working dogs in special operations. Often, they will enter the danger zone with a camera on their backs before the humans do so.

“The dog is a war veteran and a valued member of the team,” a currently serving soldier assigned to Delta Force told the Washington Examiner. The soldier did not provide details, pending permission from the dog’s handler and chain of command. Everyone involved in the mission is being debriefed and is out of communication for the time being, the soldier said. Within the community, he says, “The injury to the dog is an injury to one of us. These dogs are a special breed of courageous.”

In a tweet on October 28, President Trump declassified an image of the hero dog.

Newsweek reports that “Multiple Defense Department sources confirmed to Newsweek on Monday that the dog’s name is Conan,” and that U.S. Army General Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters at a Pentagon briefing Monday that the dog was “slightly wounded and fully recovering.”

This was confirmed by Deputy National Security Adviser Victoria Coates. Coates announced on Hugh Hewitt’s radio program yesterday that hero dog Conan will recover.

Daily Wire has another pic of Conan, a male Belgian Malinois:

Cat carries friend’s lifeless body to shelter

This will break your heart.

We are told that dogs, being pack animals, are very loyal. Cats, however, are solitary by nature.

We are also told that non-human creatures don’t have feelings like we humans have.

But a homeless cat in China demonstrated not only loyalty to its companion, but a depth of feeling rivaling — and perhaps surpassing — those of humans.

Tiffany Lo reports for the Daily Mail that on July 2, 2018, in the Songbei district of Harbin, northern China, a stray white-and-yellow cat was seen dragging the lifeless body of another cat by its mouth.

Clearly exhausted, the cat had to stop to gather strength as it struggled to lift up its companion’s body.

Onlookers can be heard in the video saying: “Its friend is dead. Look at the cat.”

The devoted cat eventually succeeded in sheltering the lifeless body of its companion under a car.

Dachshund sacrifices life saving infant from poisonous snake

A brave dachshund named Miley sacrificed her life, protecting a one-year-old infant from being bitten by a cobra.

Manila Bulletin reports that on July 19, 2019, in Barangay Lanao, Philippines,  two dachshunds fought off a cobra that tried to attack their owner, fast food manager Jaim Selim’s one-year old son.

Footage taken from a closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera in Selim’s residence showed the two dogs battling the cobra, which had managed to enter the house. The more the cobra got bitten by the dogs, the stronger it got, spewing out venom.

Miley, who fought the snake the hardest, absorbed most of the venomous attacks and died minutes later.

But Miley didn’t die in vain, as the dachshunds successfully killed the cobra.

Although the other dachshund was hit in the eys with the cobra’s venom, Selim immediately brought the dog to a veterinarian for treatment, and the dog survived.

Chihuahua found help for elderly owner who fell and couldn’t get up for 5 hours

Sassy is a 9-year-old Chihuahua.

Sassy weighs only a few pounds, but she has the heart of a lion.

She lives in Inverness, Citrus County, Florida, with her owner, 92-year-old  Marie Alexander who had rescued Sassy from a shelter when she was a pup, and trained Sassy to only bark when the doorbell rings.

One day, as Marie went out to retrieve the mail, she turned her ankle and crumpled to the ground where no one could see her.

For five hours, Sassy continuously barked for help, and tried chasing down every car that passed.

Finally, a couple walking by heard Sassy and saw Marie on the ground.

Marie was hospitalized with severe dehydration and some bruised ribs. But Sassy undoubtedly saved her life.
