Yorkies are cute. Usually kind of worthless for things like fetching the paper or protecting the homestead, but cute.
Well, one Yorkshire terrier in California was out to change that stigma for all pupkind. He helped save his owner from a bear.
"He kept him distracted. ... That's when the bear turned around to see Benji and that's when I jumped up. ... It was terrifying ... I really didn't know if I was going to make it out or not," Larry Yepez told KFSN.
