Dog That Saved Puppy From Coyote Up For Adoption


By Paul Johnson

Rancho Santa Fe, California (CNN) - Step aside, Lassie.
This two-year-old malti-poo earned hero status after defending a puppy from a coyote.
Sophie and seven-month-old Lulu were in their California backyard when a coyote tried to attack the younger pup.
Sophie came to the rescue, fending off the animal.
But she was hurt in the process.
The minute that it came to defending a dog smaller than herself, she was there and she was on it. And I think a lot of animals are like that. They jump into action when they are protecting someone that they love.
Sophie and Lulu's owners gave up the dogs after the attack--- fearing it might happen again.
Lulu has already found a home... Sophie is still up for adoption.
