In the midst of teargas and riots in Greece earlier this week, with protestors fed up with austerity and the deep recession, there is a new hero: a dog!
The dog, thought to be a stray called Loukanikos, or Sausage, has apparently been in the centre of Greek protest action for years.
And here he is, filmed last Wednesday, June 15, at the front line when Greek police fired teargas at protesters outside Parliament.
