A stray dog named Kanellos has apparently been on the front lines of most major protests in Greece over the past two years. He is also the focus of a blog, the subject of a recent Guardian photo essay, and the inspiration for several YouTube video homages.
The dog, whose name in Greek means cinnamon, is shown in some of the hairiest situations as police spray tear gas and get violent with demonstrators.
Check out the Guardian photo essay of the courageous anti-capitalist canine, as well as a video of Kanellos the protest dog in action:
