There are many different words that we might use to describe our dogs. For some of us, companion is the word that comes to our mind first. After all, dogs are there for us through thick and thin and they are always going to be a part of our everyday life. We might also use words such as loyalty, love, or perhaps even happiness. All of those words are correct but have you ever considered your dog to be a hero? In some cases, they may not start out as a hero but then they could do something that automatically turns them into the biggest hero you could ever have. That is the case with Macy the Yorkie.
As a Yorkshire Terrier, Macy may be a little dog on the outside but on the inside, she is a roaring lion. She proved this recently when she was out with her human sister, who was only 10 years old. That little girl, Lily was walking her around the block in Ontario, Canada when a most frightful thing happened. A coyote came out and started to chase them down the sidewalk. The little girl ran, but she had little hope of getting away from the coyote. That is where Macy came in.
Macy didn’t care that she was only about 10 pounds, she stood up to the coyote and started barking like crazy. She was dodging and weaving and doing everything that she could to frighten the coyote away. Lily ran screaming for help, but Macy was there to help her.
Unfortunately, Macy was injured when she was attacked by the coyote but that didn’t stop her from standing up for her big sister. At one point in the video, you can even see her chasing the coyote after she was injured! It’s just one more reason why we love dogs so much. Watch the video for yourself.
