Dog Acts As "Baby Gate" Protecting Tiny Human 

A dog protecting its human family members is not unheard of, especially since many dog owners train their pups to be guard dogs that watch over their homes or their herds. However, this large dog has the most important job of all, positioning herself perfectly on the stairs as the ultimate protector.

Just when the toddler thought he might make it up the stairs for the first time, his rather excellent guard dog steps in to ensure he stays on level ground, right where he belongs.
