If you're in need of a good cry, this one is for you!

Each year, Purina honours dogs across Canada whose heroic acts have saved a human life. This year was no different. Earlier this week, at Purina PawsWay in Toronto, four selfless dogs (Raya, Rex, Zola and Lonca) were recognized for their life-saving feats and inducted into the Purina Animal Hall of Fame.

Check out the videos below to see exactly what these dogs did to save their owners' lives:

The loyalty, bravery and determination displayed by these four animals illustrates the incredibly strong bond between people and their pets.
