There a lot of stories that have been shared about dogs saving their owners’ lives, but still, there are others that you tell about humans saving the doggies from harm. These people risk their lives to ensure the safety and well-being of the dogs in their care. The experience of Buddy and this white Golden Retriever named Osi is one of these stories.
A sudden attack
Jody Ackerman left her dog with her father, Buddy, in his Palm Harbor home in Florida when she went out for vacation. As per usual, Buddy took the pooch out for their morning walk along a nearby creek. This was when an enormous alligator decided to attack.
The only alert that the gator gave the walking duo was the sound of the water splashing as it exploded out of it and went straight for the dog. While the unaware pooch was busy doing his business, the enormous jaws of the gator clamped down on his hindquarters. The dog is suddenly started squealing in pain while he squirmed, trying to get away from the gator’s deadly hold on him.
Buddy bravely ran straight for the dog and started to try and tug the pooch to get him away. However, the sharp teeth of the gator just wouldn’t let go. Finally, this old man had to generate a big kick on the gator’s snout was what it took for things to calm down and gave us the chance to let the dog go and check on his injuries.
Because of Buddy’s bravery, Osi is still healthy and alive. The dog was lucky enough not to get injured too bad from the encounter! Thankfully, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Services came in almost immediately and got the 7 ‘7″ greater out from harming others once again.
