At just 7 months old, a puppy is being hailed as a hero for pushing a 10-year-old boy out of the path of an oncoming truck in Essex, England, in the United Kingdom.

Geo, a German shepherd-collie mix, jumped in front of Charlie and pushed him out of the way.

The pup was hit by the truck and then struck by another car. Although Geo sustained broken bones and internal injuries, veterinarians who are caring for him expect him to make a full recovery — and according to his Facebook page, Geo the Hero, he has just returned home.

I love it!  This collie/shepard pup did what comes natural..Herding his human buddy.  If you have small children the best dogs are herders and retrievers. God bless this canine and Charlie!

Too bad I couldn't enjoy the story because the stupid Best Buy ad kept opening up and filling the whole page. Glad Geo is going to recover. This family has a very special pet/guardian angel.

Sounds like this little boy has a guardian angel ( even if the angel has 4 legs ). The family should give many thanks and prayers.... there must be a reason he was spared.
awww...praying for this very awsome pup. <3

this dog was mixed up, sounds like he tried to push the kid in front of the truck, prob because he didnt share his capt crunch.
