Brave dog nearly dies trying to protect his loving owners!

Loyalty is an important trait, but far too uncommon. We expect our friends and family to have our back, but that’s not always the case.

When we’re put into a situation where trust is tested, we quickly discover who stands behind us and who doesn’t.

This holds true with animals, as well. Anyone with a family pet will tell you there’s a special bond they share. Dogs are a great example of this loyalty.

Over time, they grow incredibly affectionate of their owners and will stand by to protect them even in the most dangerous moments. A brave dog from Kibler Park, South Africa, is recovering at a local veterinarian hospital after it courageously defended its owners during a horrifying incident.
