Canadian dog honored for foiling pit bull


UPI News Service, 03/30/2013 

A plucky Chihuahua is being honored by an animal-rights group for saving its owner from an angry pit bull in Canada.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals said it was giving the little dog named Honey its "Small Dog, Big Hero" award for going after a neighbor's pit bull, after the pit bull attacked 8-year-old Jenna Desrochers last week in Chilliwack, British Columbia.

Jenna was seriously injured but it might have been worse had Honey not gone nose-to-knee with the neighbor's aggressive mutt, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. said.

PETA said Honey's heroics were a reminder of the good things that can happen to families that adopt dogs, the CBC said.

"PETA hopes Honey's selflessness and bravery will remind everyone of the many rewards of sharing our lives with animal companions -- and the importance of valuing their devotion by becoming the best guardians possible," PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman said.
