I love a “Good Dog!” story, and here’s a really good one: a New Jersey man named Brian saved a six-year-old German Shepherd named Sadie by adopting her from the Ramapo-Bergen Animal Shelter. A few months later, she saved him. He suffered a stroke, and Sadie helped pull him across the room to his cell phone so he could call 911, then stayed with him, licking his face to keep him awake until paramedics arrived. He’s now in rehab and visits with Sadie every night by video call while she’s staying with his family.
Granted, it would’ve been easier for Sadie to bring him the cell phone, but when you’ve got a dog like that, you don’t quibble over details.
