A few months after adopting Sadie, Brian suffered a stroke, a condition that could have been potentially fatal for him. Brian had gotten up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom, but as soon as he stepped off his bed, he collapsed in a heap and couldn’t get back up.
Fortunately for Brian, Sadie was around and alert, and upon hearing him collapse, she concluded that something was not right. Sadie rushed to Brian’s side and started licking his face to keep him awake. Brian then got hold of Sadie’s collar, and the German Shepherd dragged him across the room till he was able to reach his phone and dial 911.
Had Sadie not done this, Brian doubts he would have been able to get help in time, which means the situation could have been catastrophic for him. Luckily, Sadie knew the right thing to do. It’s as if she had been trained on how to deal with such emergencies. Brian saved Sadie by rescuing her from the shelter, and Sadie returned the favor by saving his life.
At the moment, Brian is still in hospital recovering from the stroke, while his brother is taking care of Sadie in the meantime. Brian is hoping to get released from the hospital soon so he can get reunited with the amazing dog that saved his life. He can’t wait to give Sadie a big hug once they get back together.
