Most of the time, when dogs display strange behaviors, they do it with a reason-and, dogs are indeed able to know when all is not well.
The below story supports this notion. This dog was at a wedding in Nigeria, and all those in attendance thought all was well. But this dog who is now being praised for his heroic act sensed danger.
The wedding was taking place in Belbelo last Spring, and the guest had gathered ready for the big day.
Many of the villagers had come to the wedding but were unaware there was imminent danger.
Amid the celebrations, a young lady marched towards the crowd and had a bomb covered under her clothes. She intended to blow herself up during the gathering.
But one of the dogs belonging to a guest sensed danger. He ran towards the lady, attacking her.
Speaking to The Telegraph, Victor Isuku, for the police, said: “The dog halted an attempt by the girl to detonate the IED among the guests.”

Had the bomb exploded in the crowd, the consequences would have been catastrophic. The dog ensured the bomb exploded far from where the guests were sitting.
The dog and the suicide bomber perished-the brave actions of this dog ensure the safety of all the wedding guests. Now the dog is being hailed as a hero, and the villages will be forever thankful that their four-legged friend sacrificed himself to save their lives.
Dogs remain our best friends, and this story shows exactly that.
I now want many people to know about this dog and always to remember the heroic act of this dog that helped save many lives.
