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.

Good dog!
