Hero Dog Gets Award Post-Humously

 

Updated : Feb 11, 2009

A hero jack russell called George, who lost his life trying to save a group of children from a Pit Bull attack, has been awarded the top honour for pet bravery.

George, from Manaia, New Zealand, was given a posthumous PDSA Gold Medal, the animal equivalent of the George Cross, at a special ceremony in his home town.

He had been out for a walk with five local children, aged between three and 12 years old, when a pair of Pit Bull Terriers set upon them.
The 14-year-old dog sustained significant injuries as he shielded the children from the attack and later died from his wounds.

Hundreds of people, including the children he saved, turned out to honour George at the presentation and the medal has been hung around the neck of a statue of the brave dog, which has been erected in the town in his memory.

VeryHappyPig is almost crying writing this story.
