A ferocious wild animal attack. Heart failure in the middle of the night.
Near-fatal diabetic coma. Missing for days in a freezing blizzard.
Four lucky humans were saved from these life-threatening situations
thanks to the courage and determination of three family pets and one police
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.
