It’s amazing how loyal a dog is to its owner. We’ve seen so many stories of brave pets protecting their owners when they’re at risk, even if that means endangering their own lives.
Like a brave dog facing a mountain lion that threatens his family.
Mary Padres, La Verne, California, shouted, “The mountain lion was looking at me right,” when faced with a large wild mountain lion in his backyard. She told Mary to CBS Los Angeles. “It was good.”
But Mary’s dogs were watching to protect their home. Both dogs barked at the mountain lion to scare him-and the smaller of the two dogs, Rocky, decided to drive the animal away.
Rocky fearlessly chased big wild cats and climbed hills as evidence of great heroes sometimes coming in small packages.
Unfortunately, the big cat counterattacked and left Rocky with some serious injuries. “We saw a hole in his brain,” Mary recalled.
After seeing Rocky bravely acting to protect his family, Mary returned in favor and went out to look for a dog, despite the nearby Mountain Lion.
According to CBS LA, the Mountain Lion is still big, but fortunately Rocky survived the trials and was hurt but alive. He reportedly suffered eight major puncture wounds and was sewn with 30 stitches by a veterinarian.
His owner was very grateful to him for knowing that he was sacrificing his safety to protect her.
What a brave dog! Rocky, thank you for protecting your family-I hope you recover well!
