German Shepherd Saves 6-Year-Old From Charging Neighbor’s Dog [Video]


  • A German Shepherd and his human brother were playing in their front yard when the neighbor’s dog zeroes in on the boy.
  • The dog quickly foils the other dog’s attempt and chases the dog away from his brother.
  • The dog’s heroism was captured in a video that has gone viral with 26 million views.\

The German Shepherd dog breed is known for its loyalty and protectiveness, according to the American Kennel Club. 

In the breed’s description it reads, “There are many reasons why German Shepherds stand in the front rank of canine royalty, but experts say their defining attribute is character: loyalty, courage, confidence, the ability to learn commands for many tasks, and the willingness to put their life on the line in defense of loved ones.”

And thanks to these qualities, a family’s German shepherd foiled an attack by a neighbor’s dog on their 6-year-old boy.

In a social media post, Tank the dog’s owners said that their kid was just playing with their dog Tank in their front yard when a neighbor’s dog charged straight at the boy.

In the video clip that has already reached 26 million views, the moment that Tank saw the other dog running towards his brother, he chases the dog away from the boy.  He prevented the dog from getting near his brother.

One commenter said, “Do you believe that your dog is smart enough that it knocked your son down at the beginning to protect him? I do and it’s freaking amazinnnnnggg.”  What Tank did was indeed amazing. 

@lovehenesy94 THE MAN, THE MYTH, THE LEGEND 😍🫶🏽 This is Tank & no, he is not professionally trained. Hes just a man with killer instincts, who loves a good chew toy 🥰 #guarddogs #dogsoftiktok #fyp #superhero #skilledtraining #ourbaby #homesecurity @flodaboy1 ♬ Funny Song – Cavendish Music

But one viewer not only praised Tank for his heroic act but also another dog who also chased the neighbor’s dog away. The viewer noted, “what’s the story with the second dog he did a good job, too he ran up there to help his brother out.”

The incident also prompted one commenter to share, “My German shepherd saved me once from another dog when I was 16.”

You are more than great, Tank. Thank you!

love that video clip NAUGHT!!!!!

Bless the dog that saved that little boy. The owner of that other dog either needs to put up a sturdy fence or keep him chained!! No telling what could have happened if the other dog hadn’t chased him away. I understand the dog wanting to protect his property….BUT if he attacks someone then he may have to be put down. That’s a horrible thought because the owner won’t protect the neighborhood & his dog.

Great story, but it looks to me like the dark dog ran past the little boy and straight at the boys dog??

I once saw a video showing a CAT chasing away the neighbors’ dog which was attacking the cat’s toddler brother!
