Dogs are acutely aware of their surroundings, particularly when it comes to their family. When a dog detects that a human is upset, he will empathise them in an attempt to help them feel better. However, their abilities of awareness are sometimes so acute that they can save a life.
I was jolted up in the middle of the night.
Mary Lynn wasn’t sure what to think of her German Shepherd, Lucy, when she was woken one late night by her. Lucy seemed compelled to attract Mary Lynn’s attention. She would normally give her the care she craved, but it was after all the middle of the night.
We’re on the lookout for the source of Lucy’s anxiety.
There was no cause for the doge to be behaving in this manner.
Although German shepherds are known for their high activity levels, Lucy has been well and knew better than to stir up her parents after they had gone to sleep.
Mary Lynn woke up, thinking it was something essential, to figure out what was going on.
Eric, Mary Lynn’s husband, had a heart attack.
She realized why Lucy had woken her up after gazing across at her husband Eric. Eric was suffering from a heart attack. Eric would have passed away if Lucy hadn’t been there to wake her up. Mary Lynn, on the other hand, was able to intervene and save his life.
Mary Lynn phoned 911 and performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
Mary Lynn, on the other hand, had to act immediately. So she contacted 911 first. She then started administering CPR on her husband while waiting for the paramedics to arrive. Mary Lynn opened the door for the paramedics as soon as they came. They then loaded him into an emergency and drove him to a nearby hospital.
Eric’s life has been saved.
Lucy has been recognized as a hero for her role in Eric’s rescue. Her dad would not have survived his heart attack if it hadn’t been for her keen observational skills. Instead, thanks to Lucy, Mary Lynn, and the first responders, Eric was able to fully recover.
Lucy gets praised for her deeds.
A month after Eric’s close heart attack, the Shakopee Police Department praised the beloved dog for her life-saving actions. Lucy was given cookies and toys by police officers and firemen after coming at the Shakopee Fire Department with her parents.
Luckily, Eric and Mary Lynn have Lucy, a very intelligent dog. She has shown to be a valuable part of the family in a variety of ways.
