A two-year-old Rottweiler has been recognised for his bravery after he saved a woman from a sex attacker.
The dog, named Jake, chased off the man as he molested a woman on Hearsall Common, Coventry, in July 2009.
Jake, who stood guard over the victim until police arrived, received his honour at an RSPCA event in Shrewsbury.
The attacker was convicted of serious sexual assault and jailed for four years.

The dog’s lucky he didn’t get shot for his efforts.Oh,that was England and not the US.
Normally in the UK stopping a crime would be grounds for arrest. lol.
Aww I love heroic dog stories like this. I was visiting distant relatives one Christmas and chasing 2 little neices around the kitchen island when all of a sudden I felt a jaw clenched on my arm. I stood still and about 3 seconds later the Rottweiler let go. Just gave me a warning to not hurt the kids lol. Good dogs for protection.
Dogs are often quite empathetic. The dog probably picked up on the woman’s cries and ditress and the assailant’s violent emotions, and figured out who the victim was and who the bad guy was. Similarly, when the cops came, the dog sensed that they were not violent, and that the victim was happy to see them. So, the dog knew that the cops were good guys.
It’s a great story- but the frustrating part is what was left out in the BBC story, but reported in the Daily Mail article:
The perp was an illegal immigrant, Esmahil Adhami.
So once again, selective reporting by the media.
Anyhow, good dog and Go Rotties!
Good boy, Jake!
Someone give that doggie a bone!
