Who doesn't love a hero?  When we heard of a hero dog who risked his life to protect his PetParent we just couldn't believe it! Well, we researched it down and found out it was true and how happy did it make us?

As the story goes a venomous diamondback rattlesnake appeared in the backyard of a 7-year old girl. Haus an awesome German Shepard is the loveable our hero! Haus came to her rescue and refused to back down. Our hero is a rescue dog and boy do we think that he was saying thank you and repaying the love... Yea Haus! Check out more of Haus's story here.
