Dogs save toddler's life
TWO family dogs are being hailed as heroes - and may receive bravery awards - after they saved a two-year-old boy from drowning in a dam at a property near Mackay yesterday morning.

Police said the dogs, a Rottweiler cross and a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, dragged the boy from the water after he had wandered on to a neighbouring property's dam.

The owner of the property had heard a noise about 11am and had run to the dam, which was about 100 m from the house.

The woman found the boy lying on the embankment of the dam covered in mud with the two dogs, usually thought of as aggressive breeds, by his side.

Police said there were drag marks from the waters edge to where the boy was lying and small scratches on his arms from the dog's claws.

"We are certain the dogs pulled him out of the dam," a police spokesman said.

"It is an amazing story."

The Queensland Ambulance Service said the mother and child were taken to Mackay Base Hospital as a precaution, and the child did not need CPR.

They were believed to recovering at home yesterday evening.

RSPCA Queensland chief executive Mark Townend (Townend) today said it was an extraordinary story.

``To actually drag a kid out of a dam is amazing,'' Mr Townend said.

``It's sort of a bit unbelievable at first but police assure me that's exactly what's happened.''

He said the RSPCA would get the details from the police and would decide whether the dogs qualified for its animal bravery award at the association's next meeting in February.

``We have limited awards we give for very special occasions and I would be surprised if this one doesn't qualify for that, to be recognised,'' he said.

Temperament also comes into it and the knowledge of how to deal with something out of the ordinary.

Funny our family Rotti saved my sister many years ago also when she fell into a flooded well on our old property.

As for big dogs Vs little dogs. I' rather face a big dog than a little one any time.
We have bottled LPG at home (no natural gas out my area) and one time the gas man had come to refill the bottle and he saw our little dash hound and our big german shepard. He was worried about the german shepard and was keeping an eye on him. next thing he know jthe dash hound has taken a chunk out of his leg - 50something stitches later...

You are right in what you say in big vs small but the advantage of small dog is that it can sit quite comfortably on your lap, hence the term 'lap dog'.

You havent seen my cats. :P

2 of them are from a litter of strays from our factory in moorabbin - they are tough cats, bigger than one of my dogs.
The cats are allowed inside - the dogs arent ;)
Hence my "lap dogs" are actually cats.

Plus they are fluffier and softer and they dont bark in the middle of the night if they are inside and theres foxes around and they dont smell cause they dont go swimming in the dam like the dogs do :)

OK most of the times it is owners but I tend to think I am a good owner and one of my dogs absolutely hates kids and I can't let him near them otherwise he will try and kill them. I have trained him he is very obedient and smart and is great around everyone bar kids, he has never been around kids though so I think it might come down to temperament. He was dumped as a puppy so maybe he was pestered by kids when young.

Thats the offender my other dog is a collie cross shepard and is also very smart but extremely good with kids as he grew up around them a little I think.
