6 year old Maltese/Shitzu Buddy saves life in Encanterra


Buddy, a 6-year old Maltese/Shitzu, is a hero this holiday season after saving a life in Encanterra. 

Buddy started barking and kept barking non-stop for 20 minutes inside his home  He just wouldn't stop.  Buddy's "mom" gave up trying to get him to stop barking and finally asked him to show her what he was barking at. "He lead me into the backyard," said Buddy's mom. "When I called out, our neighbor with every bit of her energy answered."   Quickly she went to check on the neighbor and discovered that the neighbor had fallen, after feeling dizzy.  After a quick assessment, it was determined that she had a stroke.  9-1-1 was called and the fire department confirmed the stroke and rushed her to the nearest stroke center.   

The neighbor was home alone for the season. "All the other neighbors are gone," said Buddy's mom. "Had Buddy not alerted us, who knows what would have happened." 

Next time you hear a dog barking non-stop, don't get frustrated with your neighbor. One day they too may save your life. Way to go Buddy!
