Six-year-old Bridger from Cheyenne, Wyoming is recognized as a hero for saving his little sister from a dog attack.

Nikki Walker, the aunt of the minor, published the child’s courageous act in the nets, generating a wave of reactions:
“My nephew is a hero who saved his little sister from a puppy who attacked them. He took the attack himself so that the dog would do nothing to his sister. When asked why he did it, he replied, ‘If anyone was going to die, I thought it should be me.'”
The 6-year-old boy was attacked by the dog and was immediately transferred to the hospital to heal his injuries, mainly to his face.
The boy’s aunt told:
“After being bit in the face and head several times, he grabbed his sister’s hand and ran with her to keep her safe. After receiving approximately 90 stitches from a qualified plastic surgeon, he is finally recovering at home. We love our brave son.”
Nikki wants his publication to be released, he goes to the networks to ask for help and thus fulfill his nephew’s dream of receiving the greetings of some actor from Marvel’s superhero productions.
The boy’s aunt marked Tom Holland, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Chris Pratt, Tom Hiddleston, Chadwick Boseman, Vin Diesel, and Chris Evan.
She hopes her message reaches one of the Avengers’ actors who would be admired for Bridger’s courageous performance.
Nikki’s post had thousands of reactions, she spoke recently to say that her nephew’s wounds are healing.
“His wounds look much better, he has a great happy spirit and his incredible personality is intact,” she said.
“He still can’t smile much, but he was smiling when I read some of his comments to him. I want to mention here that dog owners are great people who were very kind to Bridger and our whole family, we didn’t feel resentment towards them and, anyway, it only improved our families’ relationship after the incident.”
Some network users asked Nikki to create a fundraising campaign at GoFundMe to help the family pay for the child’s recovery. She asked everyone to collaborate with foundations like Mission 22 or the Wounded Warrior Project.
Bridger likes geology, his aunt asked his followers to send him photos of cold rocks they see.
In a final update, Nikki thanked all those who expressed their admiration for the child and were touched by the case.
“I’m trying to get as many messages as possible, but this could take a long time. For those who asked how to send stones to Bridger, he offered the address: Bridger Walker, PO Box 22141, Cheyenne, WY 82003.”
Actor Mark Ruffalo , who played the Hulk in the Avengers’ film “Age of Ultron” in 2015, commented in Nikki’s post.
“Dear Bridger, I just read about what happened to you and wanted to talk about it… The people who put others to safety by sacrificing themselves are the most heroic and thoughtful people I know. I really respect and admire your courage and your heart. True courage is not dominating people, fighting them, or walking like a tough guy. True courage is knowing what is right to do and doing it, even when you may end up hurting them in some way. You are more of a man than many, many that I have seen or known. With admiration… Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner / Hulk / Professor) “
