Now, they say dogs are a humans best friend…

And there’s no doubt they are. However, sometimes if dogs aren’t treated well from being a puppy or trained correctly, they can become aggressive and, ultimately, very dangerous.

Though fatal attacks are more of a rare occurrence, the number of people being bitten is not.

Over 4.5 million Americans are injured by dogs every year and thousands of them end up hospitalized.

Believe it or not, dog bites can cause an unbelievable amount of damage to us humans.

Most particularly, to children…

Last year, a 7-year-old boy was hailed as a hero after he risked his life to protect his younger sister from a dog attack.

Bridger Walker, who was 6-years-old at the time, saved his little sister from being attacked by a German Shepherd.

Bridger had ninety stitches in his face for the injuries he sustained while saving his sister.

And, he has since undergone multiple procedures on his face to help reduced the scarring.

Nicole Walker, Bridger’s aunt, drew attention to Bridger’s heroic efforts with a post on Instagram that went viral.

“My nephew is a hero who saved his little sister from an attacking dog,” she wrote. “He, himself, took on the attack so that the dog wouldn’t get his sister.”

Nicole explained in the post that Bridger explained his reasoning for saving his sister by saying “if someone was going to die, I thought it should be me.”

“I know it’s a long shot, but I’m reaching out to the Avengers and other heroes so that they can learn about this latest addition to their ranks,” she added, tagging the likes of Tom Holland, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo and Ryan Reynolds.

Of course, Nicole’s post was a long shot but it turned out to be a successful one.

Being the incredible people that they are, a lot of them did reply including Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, and Anne Hathaway.

Anne Hathaway took to Instagram to wish Bridger a good recovery.

“I’m not an Avenger, but I know a superhero when I see one,” she wrote. “I can only hope I’m half as brave in my life as you are in yours, Bridger. Wishing you an easeful recovery, and many cool looking rocks.”

After catching wind of Hathaway’s post, Mark Ruffalo decided to write a personal comment to Bridger.

“People who put the well beings of others in front of themselves are the most heroic and thoughtful people I know,” he wrote. “I truly respect and admire your courage and your heart. Real courage isn’t dominating people or fighting against people or walking around like a tough guy. Real courage is knowing what is right to do and doing it even when it might end up hurting you somehow.”

Bridger also received praise from Octavia Spencer…

Imagine receiving a personal message from Octavia Spencer? That’s what dreams are made of.

Now, more than a year on from the attack and Bridger’s had the opportunity to spend a day with a fellow hero…

Spider-Man.

At the time that Bridger went viral, Tom Holland promised Bridger that he could come to the filming of Spider-Man and he kept his word.

Following the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, Bridger’s father, Robert Walker, has revealed that his son got to spend a day on the set alongside Holland and all of the other cast members…

Robert took to Instagram to share photos and details of Bridger’s day on set.

He started his post by thanking Holland, Zendaya and “The entire Marvel/Sony cast and crew for this dream-come-true adventure.”

“When we first arrived on set, I was a little apprehensive that once the “curtain was pulled back” that the magic of the movies would be lost for the kids,” he wrote. 

“The opposite was true! Tom, Zendaya, Harry, @lifeisaloha@tonyrevolori, and the entire cast/crew made our kids feel like stars. They don’t just act the part of friendly neighborhood heroes – that’s what they truly are.”

Robert explained that when the children saw Holland in full costume, the look on their faces was “priceless” and “emotional.”

“A short time later, Tom and Zendaya came over,” he wrote. “I will never forget the grace and kindness they showed our children. Zendaya immediately approached my teenage daughter and told her how much she loved her nails. I don’t know if she will ever know how much that simple act means to me – to see my sweet daughter light up with self-confidence and joy.”

Robert also added that Harry Holland was their “personal guide throughout the day” and that his parents “must be so proud” as he was “such a gentleman and genuinely good person.”

“I cannot imagine there are more humble and gracious young men in all of Hollywood than the Holland boys.”

Robert finished by writing that there are many reason the new movie will “go down as one of the best ever.” However, he “personally think it is because the cast and crew are good, kind, and passionate people.”

“Individuals who heard about a little boy’s injury, who wanted to make it right. People who were willing to stop a very busy day of shooting to make my little boy smile, and give him a chance to “web-swing” with his hero.”
