    Default Injured dog shuts down NYC expressway

    Amazing Hero Dogs -- More Than Just Pets


    Animal Expert Says Not Much Is Known About Reasoning Behind Canine Heroics



    By SARAH NETTER

    Move over Lassie -- there's a whole new pack of hero dogs and they aren't just waiting for Timmy to fall down a well.

    A new video that shows a German shepherd trying valiantly -- and successfully -- to keep authorities from its injured friend on one of the busiest highways in New York City is just the latest example of dogs who go above and beyond to protect their loved ones.
    "It's possible ... there was a social bond," said Dr. E'Lise Christensen, a veterinarian and board certified animal behaviorist.

    The apparent German shepherd mix in New York City kept officials at bay on the Major Deegan Expressway by running frantic circles around the injured dog, which lay motionless and bleeding in the middle of the road. If officers tried to approach the injured animal, the shepherd would lunge, warning them to stay away.


    Christensen, who works for Manhattan-based New York City Veterinary Specialists, said after watching video of the dogs, the shepherd's protection of his injured companion was "really serious."

    It turns out that the dog was protecting its own mother. The owner called after seeing both of her dogs on tv and has them both at home now.

    Very touching story, and so glad the mama dog is ok.

    But I heard on the news that the owner didn't even know his dogs were missing till he saw them on tv! He has some 'splainin to do!!

    Thought the same thing, Trixie. They weren't tagged either.

    I hadn't heard that! What a neglectful idiot. I hope they are taken away and placed in a good home.

    I'm glad both dogs are ok. Animals getting hurt breaks my heart.
