Dog Saves Another Dog From Vicious Mountain Lion Attack

A story about a human rescuing a dog or a dog rescuing a human is wonderful. BUT a story about a dog rescuing another dog is ELITE!

Brian Hart told me about dog BFF duo, Winston the dachshund and Mijo the chiweenie from Colorado!

The two are always playing at one another’s houses, when one day they got out on their own and Mijo was IMMEDIATELY snatched up by a mountain lion!!!

Now, that would have been enough to scare away most dogs, but not Winston. This 20-lb force heard his best friend crying, and actually chased after the mountain lion! He barked at it, until it let Mijo go!

Mijo lost his eye in the attack but he is still with us, thanks to the bravest little friend ever.
