English Bulldogs are notoriously bad swimmers. With a giant head and chest compared to a lighter tail end, they have a tendency to go bottoms up in the water. So this doggy is EXTRA brave.
Napoleon, an obedient and well behaved two year old white English Bulldog in Michigan abruptly left his master's side yesterday and raced out across a road and into a nearby lake.
Napoleon's owner met him in the driveway as the bulldog came back up out of the lake dragging something in his mouth. It looked like a burlap sack, and Napoleon appeared determined to drag it up from the shore and back to his master's side.
It was then that Napoleon's owner heard the meowing and realized that there were abandoned kittens inside the bag! Six kittens in total, although two of them didn't survive and the remaining four were in bad shape. Napoleon's mom cared for the survivor's for the next two weeks until they could be taken in to the city pet adoption center and found new homes.
Napoleon got a much deserved hero's welcome at the adoption center as crowds gathered to praise the brave bulldog and cuddle the rescued kittens.
