Bulldog Gus.<br />
<br />
A dog owner got a surprise when his "dopey" pet dug up a Second World War shell on the beach.<br />
<br />
Gary Wells, 37, said his French bulldog Gus is never normally interested in picking up sticks, chasing balls or digging holes so he was surprised when the four-year-old pup started digging in the sand at Studland beach, Dorset.<br />
<br />
The protective pooch then tried to keep his owner away from the metal object he had found, pushing his body against him and preventing him from getting to the hole.<br />
<br />
Eventually Mr Wells, a care manager from Langton Matravers, was able to get a look at the ordnance and immediately called the emergency services.
