A courageous dog put his life on the line to protect two young girls from a puma attack

Introducing Morocho – The Dog That Confronted a Puma to Rescue Two Young Girls. This legendary canine bravely defeated a puma to protect the children. A few months ago, Ulises (the grandson of Dr. Notes Martines, the creator) decided to go to La Concha to attend to some chores. He planned to go and return on the same day, so he took his older daughter, ‘Sofía’, who is 10. The journey was uneventful.

Once at the estate, Uises began working with ‘Tomás’, the foreman. ‘Sofía’ and ‘Yoli’, ‘Tomás’s’ daughter, asked permission to go to a giant fig tree, about 700 yards from the main house, to pick and eat some figs. Knowing that the best figs are usually at the top of the tree, Yoli climbed up to the highest branch that she could.

There was just one problem. She wasn’t the only one up in that tree. When Yoli was about 7 feet from the ground, she started hearing noises up on the tree, like branches creaking and leaves rustling. She had no idea that there was also a puma, also known as a mountain lion or cougar, in that same tree. She looked up and saw a BIG puma descending from the upper branches. “The animal hit the kid with a paw and Yoli went all the way down, falling flatly on her back from 2 meters high.”

Neither of both kids was aware that Morocho, one of Ulises’s top dogs, had been following them playfully, tail wagging, as he almost always does when they roam through the estate. Yoli’s dad heard the girls screaming and came running as fast as he could. When Morocho came face-to-face with a puma, the Dogo Argentino decided to risk his life in order to save two small girls.

“I was thinking it was a snake,” Tomas Bracamonte said. “I came running. I raced to them as fast as I could.” When he arrived he found Morocho. The dog was badly injured but still alive. The puma ran away from us. Thanks to Morocho, those two little girls are alive today. Millions of people all over the world were shocked by Morocho’s heroic act.”
