The hero dog of Ashland (MA)
The Boston Globe has reported on a newly-recognized hero dog: Dax. Dax is the first recipient of a state heroism award. In July 2013, Dax saved his handler from a suspect armed with a shotgun.
Dax’s medal came with a special backing to protect him from its sharp edges when he wears it.
