New Jersey Dog Saves His Unconscious Owner

emergency vehicle

Dogs are so exceptionally loyal and protective. That’s why, when an unnamed woman from Northvale, New Jersey, fell unconscious at home, her dog saved her life. There is actually very little known about the event at this point other than what was reported to a local news site by unknown officers who responded to the scene. It was on Friday evening just before dark when two women who live locally were taking a walk around their neighborhood when they heard furious barking from a dog shortly before they heard the sound of shattering glass. That’s when they noticed the dog barking at a door to a home with broken glass all over the ground. Scared and concerned, the women called the police.

When police arrived and realized no one was coming to the door, they went into the house and found the homeowner unconscious on the floor. Medical professionals shared with the police that some sort of unknown health condition hit her and caused her to become knocked out. No one knows how long she was there, but it’s been estimated that it was for several days without consciousness. We don’t know how she is now, what her prognosis is or where her dog is. All we know is that New Jersey police feel that this dog broke the glass itself when it heard women walking by so that he could alert them to trouble and hopefully receive some help for his sick owner. He might just have saved her life by breaking the window.
