It's the ultimate underdog story; two English bulldogs were involved in an altercation with a bear in Bow, N.H., MyFoxBoston.com reported.

English bulldogs, two-year-old Comma, because her tail is shaped like a comma, and 6-year-old Lola aren't professional  guard dogs, according to their owners. In fact, they're more like professional sleepers.

“These are dogs that walk to the mailbox and need a week's nap,” owner Kelly Hebert said.

Especially the older and tamer one, Lola, but last week, when the Hebert family's motion sensor camera captured the huge black bear they've named Brutus wander out of the forest behind their home to feast his sights on a dinner of bird seed it set off a level of protectiveness in the pooches.

“They took on a 600 pound bear that's almost twice the weight of them put together,” Harrison Hebert said.

Lola and Comma had been fenced in on the porch, so they made a run for it snapping two spindles to break free.

They charged onto their front lawn to confront the bear, two on one!

“The dogs and bear were both curious about what each other were and it was unfortunately Lola who kinda got a little intolerant and kinda said ‘get outta here,’” Kelly explained. “What I was thinking when I was running over was there was going to be a pretty bad scene.”
