We all know that dogs are the best, right? They are so cute and fluffy, and they are literally always there when we need them. I mean, no wonder they’re “man’s best friend.” But besides that, they can be so much more working with the police, guiding blind people, sensing things before they happen are just some of their hidden talents. And of course, these beautiful creatures can also surprise us and help us when we need them the most, and even save our lives. They are definitely way smarter than we think they are and we should never ever take them for granted. Seriously, what did humans do to deserve these angelic fluffy creatures?
ROTTWEILER DIALING 911 IS WHAT SAVED THIS WOMAN’S LIFE
This cutie here is Faith, a 4-year-old dog that called 911 when its human Leana fell out of her wheelchair. “I sensed there was a problem on the other end of the 911 call,” said Jenny Buchanan, dispatcher who took the call. “The dog was too persistent in barking directly into the phone receiver. I knew she was trying to tell me something.” Once the help had arrived, Faith, unlocked the front door and let the police in. According to Leana, this cute furry hero was acting clingy and weird all the time during the day of Leana’s fall. That’s because Faith is trained to sense changes in Leana’s body chemistry and alert her to possible seizures. Leana sure is lucky to have Faith by her side.
BLACK LABRADOR SAVED A BABY FROM BEING HIT BY A CAR.
This adorable Lab pictured here is Jet and she has been a guide dog for eight years. Jet became a viral sensation in 2013 when she saved her human’s baby from getting hit by a car. “Just after we stepped off the curb I heard a screeching from a car and it banged into me, sending me flying. Just before it hit me Jet pulled her harness out of my hand and actually pushed the pram out of the way,” said Mrs.Cowley, who is registered blind. According to her, Jet hadn’t received any special training for these types of situations, but she somehow knew what to do in that moment and saved the baby’s life. After doing that, Jet went and licked the owner’s face to check if she was conscious. Seriously, how amazing is this?
WHEN YOU GET ADOPTED BY NICE PEOPLE, YOU CAN REPAY THEM BY SAVING THEIR LIVES.
This is Clobberhead, a hero dog who saved lives of his owners two months after he was adopted. “It was just one of those things where (we knew) this was our dog for sure,” Cramer, one of the owners said when looking back to the adoption day. One day, while Cramer was home sick, Clobberhead started acting weird. He would stand near the wall and sniff it and when she tried to take a dog for a walk he pulled her back inside and ran up the stairs to the laundry room and that’s when she smelled the gas leak. If it wasn’t for Clobberhead, the house would have probably burst into flames. “If it wasn’t for him coming into our lives, we probably wouldn’t be here right now,” the proud owner said.
THE DOG WHO SAVED HIS OWNER WHO WAS BURIED IN MUD.
Another example of how helpful dogs can be. In this rescue story, a man got stuck in mud in the lake, but was saved, thanks to his dog. After getting stuck, the man called 911 for help. However, when the help arrived, they realized the water was too shallow for a boat and that they too would get stuck if they tried to reach the man. Eventually, the rescuers came to idea to use the dog, who was nervously running back and forth, to get the man out of the water. They attached a rope to the dog’s collar and the dog swam to his owner, who was then pulled out by the rescue crew. Considering that the water temperature was just a bit over the freezing point, we can say that this man owes his life to his dog.
AN AUSTRALIAN KELPIE SAVED HIS 76-YEAR-OLD OWNER.
Thanks to Boydy, an Australian kelpie, 76-year-old Herbert Schutz was able to survive four cold days and nights, trapped under his vehicle until the rescue crew arrived. Herbert crashed his vehicle after hitting a tree and stayed pinned beneath the car for four days. All he had was his loyal dog friend who laid on him to keep him warm. “Even when we found him, the dog ran straight to his side and cuddled up to him. He didn’t want to leave him even then,” said one of Herbert’s neighbors. Herbert was taken to the hospital in serious condition, but don’t worry, he was okay and while he was gone, his dog, Boydy, was taken care of and rewarded by neighbors until Herbert returned home. See, you can always count on your dog!
