Ligonier (KDKA) A couple in Westmoreland County says their family dog scared off a black bear when it got a little too close for comfort to their children; but now their beloved pet is missing and they say they're hoping for a second miracle -- the return of their four-legged friend.
Quote:
Bill Rusko says the dog attacked the animal. "Major just came flying through the air and jumped on this bear's face."

I hope the family finds their beloved dog soon

Quote:
That's when Major, the family's 1-year-old boxer, ran circles around the children to protect them, then rushed the bear and bit it twice in the face and chased it away.

Oh man, that is so sad. I'm glad he defended his pack, but I hope it didn't cost him his life.

Bill Rusko said he and his children were looking in the woods about a mile from their home when Major was located. The children were yelling for Major and the dog came running out of the woods. The Rusko family brought Major home and he ate two bowls of pork chops and drank a lot of water before taking a nap on the living room floor with the children.
