Brave Dog Risked Everything To Protect His Family From A Bear
Pete, a senior Setter, showed his bravery and became a hero after protecting his family from a black bear.
Pete’s dad runs a pet sitting company called Me & My Shadow Pets. Leash-less pack hikes are a typical occurrence and loved by all the dogs. It was just another hike in the wilderness of New York State until the pack encountered a black bear.
The black bear was startled by the dogs and attacked. The brave boy, Pete, held off the bear so his dad could get the others to safety. Once the dogs were safe, his dad returned and chased the bear off, but Pete was gravely injured.
Pete was brought to a vet and x-rayed only to find out he had severe spine damage and would never walk again. He also would need multiple other surgeries, and they were not sure if he would make it through them with his age. Pete died a hero.
His dad posted this on social media.
