Benji the Yorkshire terrier doesn't look like your typical Jean-Claude Van Damme action star, but this pup really knows how to throw his ten pounds around.

On Thursday, Benji's owner, Larry Yepez, was attacked by a black bear outside his Midpines, California, home reports The Washington Post. The 66-year-old man had just stepped out of his house in the early morning when a 200-lb. bear suddenly charged at him. Yepez tried to fight off the animal with a flower pot, but soon the bear was on top of him, biting at his hands, face and arms.

"I was just trying to come home from school," Wright told Fox and Friends on Monday, when the driver insisted that dogs weren't allowed on the bus. Wright showed the driver Tank's certified collar and vest – which read "US Army Service Dog" – but the diver slammed the door in his face.
