And he's a...dog. Riot Dog, they call him:
A mystery mutt has turned up at every major demonstration in Athens for the past two years and earned iconic status.
In recent photos he is seen showing solidarity with hooded rock-throwers and barking at cops in riot gear.
"What brings him to the riots? Does he believe in the overthrow of private ownership?" an admirer asked on Facebook.
Well I'll tell you, I have plenty of issue with the anarchist ass-clowns who populate the Greek Isles these days, but I gotta give props to that pup for fighting for what he believes in....whatever that may be. And he's no johnny-come-lately to the hardcore riot scene, he's been fighting the good fight against the "dogs" of capitalism for years. Some additional pictures of this mad-dog's street cred:
Riot Dog, unlike many of his human counterparts, knows when it's time to get behind some cover...
With nothing to fear from "the pound" (Riot Dog knows where the hot bitches are at!), our hero faces the Euro-cops head-on. Look at them cower before the Dog of the People!
"I wish my dog would stand up for what she believes in," a pet-loving blogger wrote....
So many speak of the fight for freedom, so few dare to risk it all. If Riot Dog was American he'd be a Marine; Semper Fidelis, always faithful to the cause (whatever the hell it is in Greece these days), and of course, First to Fight.
Can you respect the soldier without respecting the cause? If you can, I'm a fan..of Riot Dog.

DAMN, HAVE Y'ALL EVER SEEN A DOG SO DEDICATED TO THE CAUSE? BEEN SEEN IN RIOTS SINCE 2008. SHIT, THIS DOG IS LEGIT...
