TOLEDO, Oh. - Sibling love, sometimes you never know the powers of a furry friend, no matter how big or small.

A dog in Ohio is safe because of the family cat. Izzy, a little Terrier mix pup, is now recovering after being attacked by another dog.

Izzy was walking out of her yard when the bigger dog came through... and took Izzy into its mouth.

That's when Sammy, Izzy's family's tabby cat, stepped in to help. Sammy puffed up and took action.

Izzy is now recovering from puncture wounds, but she's expected to make a full recovery.
