A Very Good Boy

George was a Jack Russell terrier who lived in Manaia, Taranaki, New Zealand. In 2007, a group of five children were walking home when they were attacked by two pit bulls. Nine-year-old George raced to defend the children, and was gravely injured in the fight. His owner, Alan Gay, reluctantly consented to euthanasia. George was posthumously awarded a medal for bravery by the Royal New Zealand Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, and the People's Dispensary for Sick Animals awarded George the PDSA Gold Medal. Soon after the incident, this statue by artist Fridtjof Hanson went up in Manaia, where George will never be forgotten. That's a good dog. -via reddit
