If you decide to adopt a dog, getting one from the shelters is definitely the best idea. That way you are giving a family and a home to a dog who truly needs it, not to mention that rescue dogs are loyal as if thanking their adopters for giving them a chance.
Sometimes these rescue dogs step up and do the rescuing and save their beloved families from the harm.
One recently adopted dog stepped up and rescued his owner’s life from a stroke.
A 6 years old German shepherd named Sadie was surrendered to Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge months ago because the owner moved and couldn’t bring the dog along. The pooch couldn’t adapt well to this drastic life change.
“She was confused and seemingly lost upon rescue, having suddenly lost the only family that she knew,” the rescue wrote on Facebook.
Sadie was described as a “loyal and loving” dog, but was facing problems finding her forever home because she was cautious around people when first meeting them.
But a man named Brian came to the shelter a few months ago and wanted to adopt Sadie.
While the pooch was usually nervous meeting new people she immediately formed a special bond with the man.
“He valued her intelligence, hesitancy to trust and fierce loyalty once she did form that trust,” the shelter wrote. “Brian gave Sadie a second chance at life, adopting Sadie and welcoming her home.”
The faith that this man put on the dog got paid off soon in a huge way, as the pooch proved how loyal and protective she was.
Brian suffered a stroke last week and no one was home except the loyal dog who quickly and instinctively worked to save the owner’s life.
According to the reports of RBARI, Sadie licked Brian’s face to keep him awake after he collapsed, and dragged him towards his cellphone so he would call for help.
“This time, Sadie gave Brian a second chance at life,” RBARI writes.
Brian is now recovering at a rehab centre while Sadie is being praised as a hero, the dog is staying with Brian’s family but they facetime each other every night.
Wow amazing dog one more proof how amazing these animals are.
