Dogs have been devoted to protecting their humans for centuries. There is a reason we call them “man’s best friend.” For most canines, that means protecting their household by barking at the mailman, but for one German Shepherd named Haus, it was so much more.

When Haus was adopted his new family had no idea that in just a few months, he would do something shocking to keep their seven-year-old daughter safe. Read about the incredible story about the tail-wagging hero named Haus.

In 2016, Donya Deluca of Tampa, Florida, adopted a two-year-old German Shepherd named Haus. When she brought him home from Heidi’s Legacy Dog Rescue, her husband, Adam, looked at her like she was crazy.

"We had recently lost our family dog, who had been with us for 13 years," Donya reported to Today. "So [Adam] looked at me like, ‘Are you serious?’ But I just couldn’t pass up the chance to rescue him."
