The heroic dog saved the family from the bear at the cost of his own life WikiPet
The toy poodle named Pickles was a favorite pet in the Tiffany family, who called him her third child. The name for the 2.5-pound dog was once coined by little Emily, the daughter of Tiffany.
The family lives in North Carolina, in the highlands of the United States. Life so close to nature led to an incident, after which for them everything will no longer be the same.
That day, Tiffany woke up early in the morning and opened the door to let Pickles go for a walk. She did not notice anything unusual from the outside and, as always, left the door open for him.
But in less than a few minutes, Tiffany saw a bear in the house. She immediately began to shout to the children to close the door in the rooms and not go out, and at that moment a wild animal rushed onto the sofa in the living room, trying to attack the mistress of the house.
But the miniature Pickles came to the rescue - he jumped towards the bear and thereby distracted him from Tiffany and, running into the street, lured the bear out of the house, but did not dodge and received a blow from him. After that, the predator hid in the forest.
The family immediately took the wounded pet to the veterinary clinic, but failed to save him - the wounds were too severe for such a small creature. Pickles went into the rainbow right in the hands of Tiffany.
The loss broke the heart of the hostess and all family members. Tiffany published a photo of a little hero and beneath her remembered how Pickles once spent the whole day with her when she was very sick: "Dogs are so faithful animals."
It really is.The kid rushed to save his beloved owners from a hundred-kilogram bear. Isn't this the real devotion?
Now the family is actively talking about its tragic story and warns people living near the habitat of the bears that they should be careful to prevent such cases.
