Can a dog save you from being killed by a bear? This family certainly was.
-A bear wandered into the North Carolina home of Tiffany Merrill and her family.
-Tiffany was sure she was going to die, but their dog Pickles got the bear’s attention and led him outside.
-She and her children were saved by their fiercely loyal dog.
The residence of the Merrill family in Black Mountain, North Carolina in the Blue Ridge Mountains was recently broken into by a bear. The mother, Tiffany Merrill, quickly shouted to her kids to close their doors to keep them out of danger.
At that moment, Tiffany was convinced she would be attacked by the bear and die. Their family dog Pickles, however, came to her rescue by barking loudly at the bear to divert its attention.
The dog eventually led the bear out of the house and kept the family safe. Tiffany regrets that she couldn’t save their dog and grieves his loss, but felt grateful for his ultimate sacrifice for her and her children.
