Kelly Andrew shared a story on social media showing how her dog Henry saved her little daughter’s life. The 8-year-old Boston Terrier apparently knew something was up with the baby, so she decided to barge into her room several times.
Kelly and her husband, Jeff, knew the baby had a cold, but they thought it was under control with their care. However, the puppy could sense that something was getting worse, so she was looking for a way to make her human parents aware of it.
Henry kept coming into the baby’s room and waking her up, and although her parents scolded him, the dog insisted on doing it when they neglected her.
Dog warns his parents that something is wrong with the baby
Kelly was tired of her dog’s behavior, but this caught her attention because it was unusual for him, so she began to worry.
Suddenly, the nine-month-old baby stopped breathing, but thanks to Henry’s sixth sense, her parents were able to get her to the hospital in time.
“She was not clearing her airway. She started turning blue and getting stiff, and she just couldn’t breathe.”
Fortunately, the doctors managed to clear the baby’s airway and made sure she was healthy enough to go home.
The couple was impressed with their dog’s attitude, but above all, they were very grateful to Henry, because he saved their little sister’s life.
They did not hesitate to praise him and say many kind words to their furry friend, even saying that he would receive an additional gift that Christmas. The post quickly went viral as it touched the hearts of thousands of people, getting everyone to comment on similar stories.
There seem to be plenty of stories of pets who did some kind of heroic deed to help their families, showing just how important they are.
In addition, there are several scientific studies that reveal that dogs’ good sense of smell also serves to detect different types of diseases. Since, according to science writer Mia Rozenbaum, dogs are known to detect cancer, malaria, Parkinson’s disease, COVID-19, and more.
Mia said, according to Bored Panda :
“Dogs’ sense of smell is so subtle that they can pick up the slightest change in human scent caused by disease.”
For now, Henry is getting a lot of rewards as they let him sleep in the bed and every day he gets nice portions of Steak.
“I’ve never done anything so heroic before.”
Her parents are proud of Henry, because thanks to his intuition their little daughter got a second chance at life.
