    Four lucky humans were saved from these life-threatening situations

search and rescue dog. These four-legged heroes were selected from across the
country to be inducted into the 41st annual Purina Animal Hall of Fame. For
more than four decades, the Purina Animal Hall of Fame has honoured acts of
bravery, compassion and loyalty by an animal in order to save a human life.
