Mighty Fearless :: Mighty Dog



This ad wouldn't work as well with any other breed.

As a child, I had a beagle/terrier cross who did just that (with a California mountain lion.) Dog survived; lion must not have been hungry. Can still see it in my mind's You-Tube.

"my mind's You-Tube."

I like that line.

Glad the dog didn't get eaten too :)

a little bitch that I bred just over a year ago, killed a 3 metre puff adder a couple of months ago down here. The owner was very proud, as am I at the dogs courage, but the truth of a situation like this is that the terrier is very lucky to have won and survived. a tip for anyone whos terrier corners a snake, do not distract the dog, keep very quiet and pray. If you call the dog you can distract it long enough for the snake to get a good strike.

It's funny 'cause it's true. My little piebald attacked a pit bull (after a little canine misunderstanding)in the park - as the owner picked up the 60 pound dog ( "I'm trying to teach him to be good!") to stop the fight my little guy was hanging off one of those muscular back legs... they are fearless little guys!

You've probably already had this up on your blog- but here's a fearless little maniac who got himself stuck 30 meters (90 feet!) up a tree: http://www.stuff.co.nz/life-style/cutestuff/10282489/Dog-rescued-from-tree-by-cherry-picker

Great! Not seen that story. These dogs are insane.

Of course you know that the scenario in this ad actually played out in real life with a mountain lion http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/11/12/chad-strenges-jack-russel_n_782730.html

Yes, blogged it when it happened. http://terriermandotcom.blogspot.com/2010/11/cougar-meets-his-match.html

I actually know of a number of bear and big cat hunters who use Jacks to bust lion, leopard, and bear out of thick stuff, both here in the US and in Africa.
