Rex the 2-year-old German shepherd is being called a “hero dog” for taking at least three gunshots while protecting his teenage owner from burglars. He is in stable condition at our BluePearl Veterinary Partners hospital in Renton. In the intensive care unit, Rex is receiving pain medication, antibiotics, wound care and round-the-clock monitoring.

    Hero dog takes bullet for teenager in Des Moines home invasion
    SEATTLE, Wash. - When burglars violently broke into a Des Moines home mid-afternoon on Wednesday, a teenager hid in a closet and held on to his dog. But Rex - a 2-year-old German shepherd - ran downstairs to protect the 16-year-old. The dog confronted the burglars, who beat him until he was bloody.

According to BluePearl's head of behavioral medicine, Dr. Jill Sackman, cats are very trainable and have a learning capacity similar to dogs. Does your cat know any tricks? Tell us in the comments.

    How to train your cat - and why you should
    It's common knowledge that dogs can be trained to obey cues and do tricks, and it's a common misconception that the same is not true for cats. Actually, cats are very trainable and have a learning capacity similar to dogs, according to Dr. Jill Sackman, a BluePearl veterinarian and pet behavior expert.
