The bond between dogs and humans is deep and lasting. When humans are facing tragedy, dogs are often there to provide comfort or act as heroes. There are countless stories of dogs rescuing people, from the cocker spaniel who lead help back to the scene of a car accident and the blue heeler who faced down an alligator to save his owner, to the military dogs who save lives every single day.
