DOG REWARDED FOR BITING SEX ATTACKER
A dog that saved a 16-year-old girl from a sexual assault in Brisbane last week will receive an award for bravery.
Jesse, a three-year-old dachshund, bit the man when he attacked his owner.
The girl was the 36th reported victim of sex attacks in parks and on bikeways in Brisbane.
The dog will be presented with an Animal Achievement Award and a big bone.
RSPCA spokesman Michael Beatty says Jesse is a worthy recipient.
"If it hadn't been for Jesse, his young owner could literally have been in very, very, very serious trouble," he said.
"It was purely due to the actions of Jesse that the young girl was able to make her escape."
