JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - PETA is honoring a police dog that saved a deputy from three attackers last week.

The Clarion-Ledger (http://on.thec-l.com/1I3XsWV) reported Friday PETA sent the Heroic Dog Award to Hancock County K-9 officer Lucas, who saved Deputy Todd Frazier from an attack last Monday.

Authorities say Frazier was jumped by three men when he stopped to check on a car on the side of the road. As Frazier was being attacked, he activated a pop mechanism and freed Lucas from the back of his squad car. The Belgian Malinois attacked the suspects, biting one of them.

Lucas suffered road rash and a torn ligament. Frazier was beaten and cut with a box cutter. Both will make a full recovery.

Lucas will receive a framed certificate and a goody bag from PETA.
