Hero Dog Takes A Bullet For His Buddy During Armed Robbery
Bow wow ow!
A dog took a bullet for his best friend — and survived — after a trio of robbers jumped his master in Brooklyn, officials said Saturday.
The pooch’s 26-year-old owner was walking on Eastern Parkway near Troy Ave. in Crown Heights when the three muggers ran up to him about 4 a.m. on Friday.
When one of the suspects pulled a gun, the dog yelped, startling the crook, officials said.
The jumpy gunman fired off one round, hitting the dog in the lower back.
As the dog reeled in pain, the muggers stole the victim’s cell phone and ran off, officials said.

The wounded dog was taken to an ASPCA facility, where a vet treated the animal — and removed the bullet for police to examine as evidence, a spokeswoman said.
