A Georgia sheepdog is recovering at home two days after killing a pack of coyotes that attacked his owner's flock of sheep, farmer John Wierwiller said. Casper, a 20-month-old Great Pyrenees from Decatur, fought off a pack of coyotes who were threatening Wierwiller's sheep farm, he said.

A Georgia sheepdog is recovering at home two days after killing a pack of coyotes that attacked his owner’s flock of sheep, farmer John Wierwiller said. Casper, a 20-month-old Great Pyrenees from Decatur, fought off a pack of coyotes who were threatening Wierwiller’s sheep farm, he said. The fight lasted longer than half an hour, and left eight coyotes dead and bloodied Casper, with skin and part of his tail torn off, Wierwiller told Atlanta’s WAGA-TV.

He scampered off but returned injured two days later after Wierwiller put out a call on social media.

?He was kinda looking at me like, Boss, stop looking at how bad I look, just take care of me,’? Wierwiller said.

LifeLine Animal Project has raised more than $15,000 for the sheepdog’s hospital bills.

Though dogs rarely prevail like Casper, packs of coyotes attacking pets have grown somewhat common in rural and growing suburban areas that abut wildlands throughout the United States.

In an another incident, a dog saves a pup from drowning in a pond. The event that seemingly took place in Lopburi, Thailand, has gone viral on the internet, leaving netizens impressed with the dog’s courageous instincts. The name of the heroic dog is claimed to be Hand, who was the first one to notice pup Soh struggling inside the pond, just barely holding up to breathe when the former sprang into action to save the day.

Going by the clip, it seems that pup Soh was playing in the yard of its house when it got stuck inside the pond. Barely clinching to the edge of the cemented border, the white pup appears to be in utter distress for being unable to come out of the water on its own. Soh tries to remain above the water level to be able to breathe by kicking the water with its back legs.

It is at that moment when the brown dog, Hand, comes to Soh’s rescue. Hand quickly runs towards the edge of the pond and observes the surroundings to look for someone to help. When the dog finds no human nearby, Hand uses his mouth to pull Soh out of danger. The job wasn’t an easy one but Hand manages to complete the rescue mission.
