* [[Website/{{Cracked}} Cracked.com]] gives us [[http://www.cracked.com/article/133_7-dogs-that-accomplished-more-than-we-ever-will/ 7 Dogs That Accomplished More Than We Ever Will]]. Particularly notable is number six on the list, who was reduced to a footnote in the story of Balto despite technically being the bigger badass (comparatively speaking). On a happier note, he and his team got huskies recognized as an official breed, and are now ancestors of most of the huskies in the US. Balto, on the other hand, had been neutered at a young age, and so contributed nothing to the bloodline. * [[http://www.dogguide.net/25-hero-dogs.php Twenty Five Heroic Dogs]]. Highlights include a bulldog that rescued a sack of kittens from a lake, a chihuahua who saved a toddler from a rattlesnake, a mutt who fought off pirates, and a blue heeler who fought an alligator. Caution: reading this page is likely to induce an urge to find the nearest dog and hug it.

* Spike from ''RugRats'', in the series' first episode, rescues Tommy and Chuckie from the vicious neighbor dog, showing from the very beginning how tough and heroic he could be when protecting 'his babies'. The best example of his heroism is when, in ''TheRugratsMovie'' , he tracks down the babies, that had been lost in the woods for a whole day and night, and when finding them, helps Tommy rescue Chuckie from a group of monkeys and later almost does an HeroicSacrifice when rescuing them from a very large, hungry wolf.
