Bridger, who lives in Wyoming, put himself between a German Shepherd mix and his 4-year-old sister as the dog was about to attack the little girl.

He was badly bitten in the cheek and had to undergo an emergency surgery during which he had 90 stitches put in his face.

His story went viral on U.S. social media and a number of celebrities responded to an appeal by his aunt on Instagram for messages of support for the boy. (Read: Three modern-day heroes who should be honored this Araw ng Kagitingan)
