Dogs often perform amazing feats, but this stray mutt might just take top dog honors this week. A few weeks ago, a border collie appeared out of nowhere on the streets of an Oklahoma City neighborhood. "He was real friendly," a resident told the local TV station, KOKO 5 News.
Not only friendly, but heroic. While hanging out near a group of kids playing near a busy street, he spied a girl stepping out on the street, unaware of a truck speeding towards her. The dog leaped in front of the truck, saving her life and getting hit by the truck instead.
Luckily, this story has a happy ending. The border collie is now at the local shelter, where a vet paid for the surgery to fix his fractured leg--and he's getting adopted soon.
The shelter folks are calling the brave border collie--what else?--Angel.
