The Story of Gelert the Family Dog

A myth submitted to the site by Lucy

Tycroes, Ammanford, Wales

Once upon a time there was a dog called Gelert, he was a lovely dog so gentle and kind.

One day the owner left Gelert to look after the baby of the family in the garden. When no one was looking a wolf came into the garden and attacked the baby. Gelert jumped on the wolf to protect the baby and bit the wolf nasty and there was blood on Gelert's face and mouth, what he didn't realise is that the wolf had already bitten the baby too.

So when the man came back he seen the baby with a bit and Gelert with a blood face and thought Gelert had done it, so he beat Gelert very bad and Gelert died.

Later the old woman from across the road came over to check how the baby was and explained how she had seen the wolf enter the garden and attacking the baby and was so happy to see Gelert protect the baby and scare the wolf away.
