Nothing is cuter than a tiny puppy trying to protect its owner

All dogs are heroes, especially this tiny puppy.

Despite its diminutive size, this puppy is determined to protect its owner from attack. When a friend playfully kicks at her legs, the brave little dog springs into action, yapping away harmlessly but adorably at his heels.

Prepare to be terrified by fearsome little paws and floppy ears. Truly, this puppy is the most adorable warrior ever.
