* In Serbia a dog named Leo saved a 10 year old girl from being attacked by a larger dog. When Leo saw the bigger dog push the girl to the ground he jumped in and started biting the bigger dog and allowed the girl to escape. Sadly Leo was killed by the other dog. There is a now a statue in a Serbian park of him that watches over the children playing. The plaque says "To all small heroes with big hearts." Good boy.

*** Speaking of whom, Sirius was a 4-year old golden labrador, a bomb-detecting canine for the Port Authority Police Department. His partner, Officer David Lim, left him in his kennel in the basement of the South Tower when he dashed off to aid in evacuating the buildings, but promised to come back for him. He was unable to rescue him before the collapse (because he himself was trapped in the rubble of the ''North'' Tower), but he still kept his promise by returning to the site to search for victims. When Sirius' remains were found on January 22, 2002, he was given all the respect that had been bestowed to his human counterparts--the machines were silenced, his remains were draped with a flag, and all those present saluted as he was carried to a police truck . A memorial service in April of 2002 was attended by 400 people, including 100 K-9 teams, two dog parks (one in Battery Park City, the other in New Jersey) were named after him, and he was awarded the Victoria Cross by the British Embassy.

** There's an almost identical story from Wales, but it was a wolf instead of a snake. The dog's name in that version was Gelert, the master Prince Llywelyn of Gwynedd, and to this day there's a village in Gwynedd called Beddgelert (Gelert's Grave, probably ''actually'' named after a now-forgotten local saint) with a monument on the grave site recounting the legend.
