Small dogs sometimes get the rap that they’re just cute and cuddly and are not useful in protecting anyone. Well, that’s definitely not true. Meet George, a 9-year-old Jack Russell Terrier from New Zealand. He gave his life to save five children from two pit bills.
George tried to protect the children by barking and jumping on the pit bulls (even though he’s less than a foot high), but the pit bulls started to bite George while the children were able to escape. Eventually, people saw what was happening and ran to help George, but he was so badly mauled that George had to be put down. George, you truly are a huge hero.
