Our Dog Heroes
“A BLIND businessman’s guide dog helped to lead him and a group of 30 people to safety during the World Trade Center attacks.”
“Labrador Roselle led the terrified city workers down nearly 80 floors, through fire and thick smoke and out to the pandemonium-filled streets.”
“Once there, she helped her master escape as Tower 2 collapsed, scattering rubble, debris and a giant dust cloud in every direction.”
“Eventually, they reached the safety of a subway station. “We had been able to help each other, because we were such a good team,” said Michael, Roselle’s owner.”
“Months after the attack, they spread their message about trust and companionship, and that the relationship between man and dog is very important. Unfortunately, Rosella died in 2011, but she’ll forever be in everyone’s mind.” – Express
Labrador puppy saved the life of a six-year-old girl who was choking to death after suffering a seizure.
“Little Olivia Goodman was lying on the sofa at home after being sent home from school with a fever. She started vomiting while lying with her face against a pillow, causing her to choke.
Mum Amanda said: “My Labrador pup alerted me as soon as it had started, barking at her side adamantly and I shouted at him not to wake her.
Olivia was taken to the Royal Hospital for Sick Children at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow.
It took her five hours to recover from the six-minute seizure and she was kept in overnight as a precaution.
She has since made a full recovery, and Amanda said: “Olivia owes her life to this puppy.” – Animal Hero Awards
“Deborah Epstein’s Yorkie, Joe, proved that guard dogs sometimes come in small packages. On a warm July day in 2013, Joe and his owner were lounging on Deborah’s front porch when the phone rang. Deborah stepped inside to answer it, leaving the front door open. Seconds later, Joe began barking excitedly.
A 100-pound black bear made its way toward Joe’s food bowl in the living room.
The prospect of losing his food may have propelled Joe into action, but he managed to defend his territory and protect his owner at the same time.” – Readers Digest
