It's the ultimate underdog story; two English bulldogs were involved in an altercation with a bear in Bow, N.H.
English bulldogs, two-year-old Comma, because her tail is shaped like a comma, and 6-year-old Lola aren't professional guard dogs, according to their owners. In fact, they're more like professional sleepers.
These are dogs that walk to the mailbox and need a week's nap, owner Kelly Hebert said.
Especially the older and tamer one, Lola, but last week, when the Hebert family's motion sensor camera captured the huge black bear they've named Brutus wander out of the forest behind their home to feast his sights on a dinner of bird seed it set off a level of protectiveness in the pooches.
They took on a 600 pound bear that's almost twice the weight of them put together, Harrison Hebert said.
Lola and Comma had been fenced in on the porch, so they made a run for it snapping two spindles to break free. They charged onto their front lawn to confront the bear, two on one!
The dogs and bear were both curious about what each other were and it was unfortunately Lola who kinda got a little intolerant and kinda said get outta here, Kelly explained. What I was thinking when I was running over was there was going to be a pretty bad scene.

As an aside, young male bears are on the move this time of year...looking for food and new territory.
Damn lucky they didn’t turn into bear scat.
Russia and Putin should take note.
Bears don’t like dogs
“It ain’t the size of the dog in the fight...”
Are you a bear or a dog...or is this second hand information?;-)
As a GA Bulldog, I applaud your comment!
Bulldogs weigh more than 150 pounds each? Somebody needs a math lesson.
That was a gay bear.
That was hilarious. The one sniffing the bear’s ass - dogs.
Then you hear someone in the background: LOLA.
They should not have let the dogs out of the house. Very foolish.
A spring bear is mostly sleepy gristle and hungry tummy...and little muscle.
Well I won’t back down, no I won’t back down
You can stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won’t back down
Gonna stand my ground, won’t be turned around
And I’ll keep this world from draggin’ me down
Gonna stand my ground and I won’t back down
Hey baby, there ain’t no easy way out
Hey I will stand my ground
And I won’t back down.
Well, I have two basset hounds and a chihuahua that would do exactly the same thing. The chihuahua would proceed to climb up the bear and clean its ears, too. If the bear protested, the chihuahua would scold him fiercely, while still cleaning the ears.
Nuconvert is right...
I’ve bear hunted in East Tennessee and Ontario, Canada for the last 40 years. We use Plott Hounds and they can trail and run almost any bear to tree...They are also great coon dogs and hog dogs...
I saw the report on FoxNews 25. The dogs broke a newel post on the porch to get at the bear, and the owner, a woman, was terrified and grateful that the dogs were unhurt. The dogs apparently normally spend the day on the porch, while she is at work.
BTW, scratch that place off my list of easy marks to burglarize.
I was joking with nc.
Glad to hear that. Dog do have wills. That’s what makes them charming to me.
