A great story coming out of Canada this new year. Once again, a dog risks it’s life to protect a human, this time an 11 year old boy.

As if we ever doubted the title, Man’s Best Friend.

From CBCNews

A golden retriever is being credited with saving an 11-year-old boy from a charging cougar in Boston Bar, B.C.

Police say the boy was gathering firewood in his backyard at about 5 p.m. PT Saturday when a cougar wandered onto the property.

When the large cat started charging across the yard towards the boy, his dog stepped between them to fight off the cougar.

When the RCMP arrived on scene minutes later, they found the cougar under the back porch of the house, chewing on the dog’s neck.

An officer shot the cougar, killing it instantly.

The dog survived the attack with minor injures. The boy was not injured.

Boston Bar is located roughly midway between Vancouver and Kamloops.
