5 Incredible Animals That Saved Their Owners From Real Danger

Anyone who has ever owned a pet knows the strong bond they can forge with us. No matter how sweet they are at home, their protective instincts always kick in when danger is afoot. That’s exactly what happened when these owners’ lives were threatened. Their furry, fluffy, and feathered friends stepped in to save the day.

Polly Caught A Bad Guy

Rachel Mancino was taking her pet bird, Wunsy, for a walk when she was attacked by a man. The bird screeched and flapped his wings at the attacker until he ran away. The woman and the bird were both unharmed. While this pet kept his owner safe in close quarters, some pets are willing to go the distance for their humans.

Fearless Fido To The Rescue

When a 3-year-old, Katrina, got lost in the Siberian wilderness, her dog was very upset. He searched the woods for her and spent a week by her side once she was found. If this story proves anything, it’s that the bonds pets make with children are very strong. This next ruthless protector only adds to the evidence.


This rescue was actually caught on the family’s surveillance camera. A mellow, yellow cat defended his 4-year-old owner against an unprovoked dog attack. I guess this kitty got sick of everyone saying that dogs chase cats. And, she’s not the only one to turn the tables.

Ain’t Nothin’ But A Hound… Cat

When Schnautzie was just a kitten, she was able to detect a gas leak and wake her owners. If she wouldn’t have been so clever, they all could have died. You could even say that she had the nose of a hound dog. Of course, she isn’t the most unique animal to ever protect its owner.

Super Squirrel

On a Monday in Idaho, a burglar got a crazy surprise when he broke into Adam Pearl’s house. Adam’s pet squirrel, Joey, was waiting to attack. He began scratching the intruder and didn’t stop until he left. Police later captured the assailant. The man says that Joey just wouldn’t leave him alone.
