Toby the Labrador lives in Barnoldswick in Lancashire. One night, he found that a burglar had broken into the house. To defend his home and family, Toby attacked the burglar. The intruder fought back with kitchen knives, stabbing Toby four times, but the brave Labrador stood his ground, forcing the burglar to flee. Now Toby has been awarded with the PDSA Certificate for Animal Bravery.
Toby's owner, Jonathan Morton, was quoted as saying: "Toby is our hero".
