Dogs have always been humans’ real-life guardian angels and they have helped save us from dangers and calamities many times – thus, saving our lives. Today’s story is about an adopted dog who was able to save a baby from life-threatening danger.

The story started when a certain family adopted a dog from a shelter.

It was a fateful day when the Brousseau family decided to check out a shelter in Portland, Connecticut to get a dog.

As they scanned the place, the string of fate led them to a miserable pup named Duke, who they immediately fell in love with. The Brousseaus decided to give the pooch a second chance in life with them as his family, but little did they know that Duke would one day repay the favor.

Five years later, the Brousseaus were about to have a new addition to their family.

For five years, Duke had already collected countless memories as he lives happily with his new family. Duke has grown as a perfect pet for the Brousseau family. One day, the family found out that they were about to have a baby. After running back home with the newborn, the family then introduced Harper, Duke’s human baby sister. Duke knew that eventually, he would have a new friend that he could play with.

The dog noticed something weird and began to worry about baby Harper.

The baby was just weeks old and Duke has been doing his job as baby Harper’s guard. He would always stay beside the baby’s crib and check on Harper from time to time. One night, Duke sensed something was wrong and so he began to feel agitated, as he has no idea what to do. The concerned pooch immediately ran towards his owners to call for help. As Duke’s owners were fast asleep, he jumped into the bed and tried his best to wake them up.

The poor pooch was shaking and the parents were still clueless about what was happening.

The Brousseaus finally woke up to the dog’s panicked state and got up to see what was happening. They were just surprised to see the dog whimpering as if something is in trouble. When the mom asked Duke what was wrong, he then immediately led them towards the baby’s room. The family panicked when they noticed that Harper was not breathing and so they called 911 to rush her to the hospital.

They were just in time to save the baby’s life.

Baby Harper was rushed to the emergency room where the doctors saved her life.

If the family arrived a second later, they might not be able to save baby Harper. It was all thanks to Duke who got the parents up just in time and heroically saved the day. Asides from Duke being the family’s good boy, he was able to repay his fur-parents from giving him a second chance before saving baby Harper’s life.

Duke was hailed a hero after his story caught the attention of many news sites. This just proves that our pets are not only there to comfort us but can also be our lifesavers.
