The Jack Russell is a small dog — a type of terrier that ranges in size from 1o to 15 inches long.
Leo is a Jack Russell mix who lives with his human (a woman with four children) and animal (another dog, Barney, and four newborn kittens) family in Melbourne, Australia.
Leo may be small but he has the heart of a lion.
One night, Leo’s house caught fire. Soon, flames filled the whole house.
Leo’s human family and Barney managed to get out, but Leo refused to flee.
When the firefighters got into the building, they found little Leo lying unconscious on the ground.
When they picked him up, they noticed that four tiny and alive kittens were underneath him. Leo was keeping the kittens safe by using his body to shield them from the fire.
Fortunately, the firefighters were able to revive Leo with oxygen.
God’s creatures like little Leo are extraordinary in their courage and sacrificial love. They put us humans to shame.
