Bridger Walker is getting a lot of praise right now after his heroic feat has gone viral. Per CNN, the six-year-old boy shielded his four-year-old sister from getting attacked by a German shepherd.

In a statement about the incident, it says, “Tragically, instead of running off, the dog leaped and latched onto Bridger’s cheek.” After a two-hour surgery and over 90 stitches, Bridger was asked by his dad why he jumped between the animal and his sister. He responded, “if someone had to die, I thought it should be me.”
Afterward, Bridger’s aunt started an Instagram page and shared that he is an Avengers fan. She wrote, “I know it’s a long shot, but I’m reaching out to the Avengers and other heroes so that they can learn about this latest addition to their ranks.”
Avengers did not let him down. In video message from Captain America himself. “Pal, you’re a hero,” Chris Evans says in the video. He goes on to praise the boy for what he did to save his sister. He also promised to send Bridger an official Captain America shield.
Mark Ruffalo commented on the post: “Dear Bridger, I just read about what happened to you and I wanted to reach out to say this… People who put the well beings of others in front of themselves are the most heroic and thoughtful people I know. I truly respect and admire your courage and your heart. Real courage isn’t dominating people or fighting against people or walking around like a tough guy. Real courage is knowing what is right to do and doing it even when it might end up hurting you somehow. You are more of a man than many, many I have seen or known. With Admiration…Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/Hulk/Professor).”
Then Anne Hathaway posted a collage of photos with the caption:  “I’m not an Avenger, but I know a superhero when I see one. I can only hope I’m half as brave in my life as you are in yours, Bridger. Wishing you an easeful recovery, and many cool looking rocks. ⁣ Hey @markruffalo, do you need a teammate??”
