A Stray Dog in Nairobi
Saves an Abandoned Infant
Stray Dog in Saves Abandoned Baby in Kenya
In Nairobi, Kenya, a stray dog saved the life of a newborn baby girl abandoned by her 13yr old mother immediately after giving birth. The heroic stray upon finding the abandoned infant in a forest took action. Being a mother herself the homeless hero somehow carried or dragged the infant across a busy road and through a barbed wire fence to a secluded spot where she lived with her litter of puppies. A nearby resident who was walking near by heard a baby crying and went to investigate. The concerned citizen crouched down and saw to his disbelief the small space with our heroic stray, her litter of puppies and a newborn infant. A dog with nothing and noone fending for herself in a harsh environment, dutifully raises her litter of puppies. With all that hardship and without help she cares for her litter, yet still has the strength and compassion to adopt the baby of another species, bringing the baby into her den with her puppies and caring for her like it was her own. Now that is my choice for the mother of the year. Beautiful what an amazing girl.
The Worlds Bravest Dog
A Homeless Canines Love for a Friend
A stray dog risks his life to rescue an injured friend on a busy Chilean Highway.
A tragedy played out in the streets of Chile when a homeless dog roamed onto a busy highway and was struck by a car. He lay badly injured in the 3rd lane with heavy, fast moving traffic. When the worlds bravest dog runs up the shoulder of the freeway trying desperately to get to his injured friend. The homeless hero starts towards his injured companion then leaps back toward the shoulder narrowly avoiding being struck by the fast moving vehicle. Starting again towards his injured friend, risking his own life to save the life of a friend. The canine hero at one point appears to be run over by a truck then miraculously emerges unscathed. Driven by the love of a friend and super human courage the second dog makes it to his badly injured companion who lies “alive but motionless” in a center lane. He then raps his front paws around the injured dog’s body and begins dragging him across two lanes towards the safety of the shoulder. With every ounce of strength that he had, the homeless hero dragged the injured dog little by little across the road. All the while cars fly by narrowly missing the pair. Somehow our couragious canine gets his injured friend to the safety of the shoulder. A road crew witnesses the whole event and comes to help. Unfortunately our hero runs off when the road crew arrives. The injured dog was taken by road crews to a veterinarian and later died.
Many calls came in with offers to adopt the homeless dog. A search was conducted for what the chilean people dubbed there hero dog. Months later officials called off the search claiming to much time had passed. The dogs were strays and probably one another’s only friends in the world. A homeless dog in an act of pure love and unflinching courage demonstrates his willingness to lay down his life for a friend.

“Bella” A Staffordshire Bull Terrier
Dies A Hero in Her Owners Arms
"Bella" Dies a Hero in Her Owners Arms.
Nicole Russell, who lived in Johannesburg, South Africa, was about to leave for work one morning when a car pulled up and four armed men jumped out and demanded her keys and purse. Nicole held both arms out so that they could take her jewelry and keys. Scared and confused she rushed to comply with their demands not realizing that she had mistakenly handed them her house keys.
The men became agitated and violent when the keys would not unlock the car. When one of the men grabbed her and began dragging her towards the car Ms. Russell (in fear for her life) screamed. Russell’s mother, alerted by the screams pushed a panic button in the house and ran into the garden.
There she was confronted by an attacker with a knife.
Bella, the family’s 4 year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier, was with the mother and immediately lunged at the knife wielding attacker. Bella bit the man several times on the leg and was then shot in the head by one of the mans accomplices. In spite of her injury Bella continued to defend her family until the men panicked and fled.
There was a point when one of the men (having just shot at Bella) turned his gun on Nichole and pulled the trigger. But either the gun misfired or Bella had taken the bullet intended for Russell.
When the men were gone Bella sat down and rolled over and as Nicole held the hero dog Bella in her arms. Bella looked at her quietly for a few moments and died.
An autopsy showed that Bella’s heart had been completely drained of blood in her fierce battle to protect her family.
On November 8, 1997 “Bella” was awarded posthumously a seven ring rosette trophy for her selfless heroism defending her family.
