AMAZING Pets That Saved Human Lives!


Pets are wonderful creatures to have. Today
we’re sharing some amazing pets that have saved human lives! 10. Lulu The Pig Lulu the Vietnamese pot-bellied pig once belonged
to a young woman who asked her parents to babysit and never returned to claim the animal.
Luckily for Lulu, her new humans, Jack and Jo Ann Altsman, fell in love with her and
she with them. One day while camping in the North Woods of Presque Isle, Pennsylvania,
Jo Ann felt a pain in her chest and her left arm went numb. Recognizing this to be a heart
attack, she began to cry for help. Their dog, an American Eskimo named Bear, barked loudly,
but no one could hear either of their cries. That’s when Lulu took matters into her own
hooves. She squeezed all of her 150-plus pounds through the too-small dog door and managed
to burst the gate open. She was injured and bleeding but went to the nearest road and
played dead. She periodically checked on her human, just to go back to the road and lie
down. Eventually, a man stopped to check on the poor animal. Lulu jumped up and had the
man follow her back to her human. Jo Ann asked him to call an ambulance and she was flown
to the medical center, Beaver, for open heart surgery. The doctors stated that if she had
waited 15 more minutes, she would have likely perished. 9. Riley New Jersey resident, Mark Stinziano, was in
for a surprise when he checked his security footage after seeing his bird feeder knocked
down. In the footage, it shows his neighbor’s dog, Riley, a black lab mix, attacking a large
black bear in their backyard. Stinziano says he was in his garage chasing down a rat snake
and had no idea the bear was even in the yard. Riley is seen racing into the yard and slamming
himself into the bear, which scrambled to escape. Riley’s owner, Alan Tlusty, says
it’s just another normal day for Riley, who always chases bears out of the backyard.
Stinziano says the dog visits his children and is a good dog and deserves a steak dinner
when he next sees the pooch. 8. Tara The Cat Tara, short for Zatara, is a tabby cat who
lives in Bakersfield, California. She joined the Triantafilo family in 2008 after she followed
them home. Tara gained some fame in 2014 after saving one of her humans, 4-year-old Jeremy,
from the neighbor’s dog. Jeremy, who is autistic, was riding his bike in the front
yard when the labrador-chow mix named Scrappy came from behind and began biting the boy’s
leg. The dog began shaking the boy and dragging him down the driveway when Tara threw her
whole body weight against the dog and chased him away. After the dog was gone, she returned
to her boy, whom the family states was very fond of him, to check on him. Jeremy needed
about 10 stitches in his leg but survived the attack and called Tara his hero. 7. Todd VS Snake Paula Godwin and her two golden retrievers,
Todd and Cooper, were on a walk one morning in Anthem, Arizona. Godwin failed to see a
rattlesnake on the path in front of them. The snake coiled to attack, and with some
quick thinking, the 6-month-old puppy jumped in front of the attacking serpent and protected
his human. Todd sustained a nasty bite to the face but was quickly taken to the hospital
by Godwin where they treated him with anti-venom and kept him for the rest of the day for monitoring.
Since that day, Todd has made a full recovery and is lauded as a hero by his human. 6. Max The Wonder Dog 80-year-old Jack Farrell was looking for someone
to keep him company when he adopted 90lb Max from a German Shepherd Rescue of Northern
California. One night, as Farrell was sleeping peacefully a wall heater malfunctioned filling
his house with dangerous carbon monoxide. Max knew exactly what to do to save his elderly
human. The dog grabbed Farrell by his arm and dragged him out of bed, down the hall,
and to the kitchen where Farrell awoke startled. He was bleeding heavily from where Max had
grabbed him and realized something was amiss. Ferrell called 911. When firefighters arrived
at the California home, they found the carbon monoxide levels to be lethal. The level was
at 75 parts per million – where firefighters put on breathing gear at around 25 parts per
million. Ferrell was briefly hospitalized but is alive today thanks to his new pal,
Max. 5. Sako In 2015, 16-year-old Joseph Phillips-Garcia
was on a vacation in British Columbia with his family and dog, Sako, a king shepherd.
After a day of fishing and wild potato picking, they packed up and headed home. Phillips-Garcia
went with his aunt, cousin and friend. On the way, their car veered off the road and
careened down a hill. Only Phillips-Garcia and Sako survived. They were both ejected
from the vehicle and Phillips-Garcia was very badly injured. Sako stayed with his owner,
keeping him warm while he slipped in and out of consciousness, and even going the extra
mile by helping Phillips-Garcia to a nearby creek for water. With a broken collar bone
and femur, Phillips-Garcia knew he wouldn’t be able to walk this injury off. As night
fell, Sako stayed close to Phillips-Garcia, continuing to keep him warm when the first
howls of coyotes were heard. They drew closer and rumblings were heard nearby. Sako sprang
into action and jumped into the brush, protecting his human and chasing away the coyotes. 40
hours after the accident, search and rescue teams found the pair and Phillips-Garcia made
a full recovery while Sako received a medal for his valiant actions. 4. Lucky Penny Brenda and her labrador, Penny, were out on
a walk along the Elwy River in Wales when they spotted an empty wheelchair by the bank.
Brenda asked another dog walker nearby if they knew what had happened; that’s when
they spotted the woman in the water. It had rained the day before, the river had swelled,
and the current was rushing by. In an act of quick thinking, Brenda commanded Penny
to “fetch.” The obedient Penny didn’t hesitate to jump into the torrent and rescue
the woman, dragging her to shore. Brenda assisted her dog and found out that the woman was still
breathing. She put the woman in the recovery position and stayed with her while the other
dog walker called for paramedics. It is believed that the rescued woman was missing from a
nearby home and has since recovered. Local authorities have praised Brenda and her 10-year-old
canine hero saying “There’s no doubt that her quick thinking and prompt action saved
the woman’s life.” 3. Kelsey The Golden Retriever New Year’s is normally a time for celebration
and making resolutions to be better in the coming year, but for this Michigan man, New
Year’s Eve was a perilous night. 64-year-old Bob was watching football when he decided
to get a new log for his fireplace. He ran out with just his long johns and slippers
when he slipped on an icy step, breaking his neck and paralyzing him. He screamed for help,
but his nearest neighbor was a quarter mile away. His golden retriever, Kelsey, heard
his cries and came to help. She barked endlessly and kept Bob warm throughout the night. From
10:30 pm to around 6:30 pm New Year’s Day, Bob lay in the snow while temperatures dropped
to 24 degrees. After nearly 20 hours of nearly freezing, Bob’s neighbor was alerted by
Kelsey’s barking and came to his aid. Bob says Kelsey kept him warm by laying on top
of him and licked his face and hands to keep him awake. When he arrived at the McLaren
Northern Michigan Emergency Department, Bob was hypothermic – his core temperature was
below 70 degrees -, had a broken neck, and some wounds on his arms where the dog pawed
him to stay awake. After surgery, Bob surprised everyone by moving his arms and legs. He says
he is eternally grateful to his doctor and his dog. 2. Dory’s Diabetic Rescue Dogs and even cats have been known to be able
to detect when their humans are having an invisible problem, like seizures or early
cancer warnings, but this next pet is not your normal detection system. Dory the Rabbit,
who is thought to be a Flemish giant, was able to save her human as he fell into a diabetic
coma. Simon Steggall of Cambridgeshire, England was watching television when he passed out.
His wife, Victoria, was in the kitchen and thought he fell asleep, so she thought nothing
of it. That is, until their rabbit Dory jumped on Mr. Steggall’s chest and began thumping
with her leg. The 1 and a half stone or 21lb rabbit’s odd behavior alerted Mrs. Steggall
when she wouldn’t get off of the furniture as she was told. Dory was digging at Mr. Steggall’s
chest and tapping her leg. This prompted the ambulance driver to check on her husband and
when she couldn’t rouse him herself, she called 999, the UK version of 911. This isn’t
the first animal Mr. Steggall has had help him detect his low blood sugar. He once owned
a black lab that would cower in a corner when his sugars were dangerously low, prompting
him to take a test and potentially saving his life. 1. Peculiar Parrots There are many families around the globe that
have birds as pets but what might be surprising is how many parrots have saved their humans’
lives. A Quaker parrot named Willy once protected his family’s youngest while she was having
a snack. 2-year-old Hanna began to turn blue and Willie began raising a ruckus to alert
his owner Megan Howard. Willie began saying “Mama baby” over again until Howard came
to check on the bird. That’s when the babysitter found the toddler and performing the Heimlich
maneuver, saving the young girl’s life. Another notable rescue was by a cockatiel
named Dylan. Cockatiels are a very popular bird to have as a pet, and Andrew Hardiek
would learn just how smart these parrots can be. Hardiek had fallen asleep after a long
shift at his factory job when a fire erupted underneath his house. Dylan sensed the blaze
and began squawking loudly which woke his human, alerting him to the fire and allowing
him and Dylan to escape unharmed. Unfortunately, the house was lost, but Hardiek and Dylan
are alive and well, thanks to Dylan’s daring defence. Do you have an animal rescue story? Share
