Leo the Super Dog!

A brave dog risked his life to protect a litter of kittens trapped in a house fire in Melbourne, Australia.

The Jack Russell Terrier cross remained in the house and stood guard over the box of four kittens when the blaze broke out at the weekend.

Firefighters had to dodge fallen power lines to rescue Leo and the kittens from the inferno, where they found the Terrier lying unconscious beside the litter.

The brave pooch was resuscitated by the fire crew with an oxygen mask and heart massage. The kittens also had to be revived.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
