Family dog rescues baby by quickly alerting parents
This story will take your breath away: What happened one fine evening in the Brousseau’s residence is miraculous. Without Duke, this story would have turned into a tragedy. But, thankfully, that wasn't the case.
This is Jenna Brousseau with her 9-week-old daughter, Harper. The previous night, she had to go through one of the most difficult experiences that could befall a young family.
Without Duke, the loyal family dog, who knows how the night would have ended.
Duke was rescued from a shelter and adopted by the Brousseaus six years ago. Since then, he’s been a faithful companion and an attentive dog. But that night…
… something unimaginable happened: Little Harper was sleeping in her crib, with Duke sleeping nearby on the floor. Suddenly, he noticed her breathing was irregular, and then that she wasn't breathing at all.
Certain that something was wrong, he burst into her parents' room and jumped on the bed until they woke up.
With no time to spare, he guided them to the baby’s room. Harper was already starting to turn blue from asphyxiation. Her parents feared the worst and immediately called an ambulance.
Thankfully, Harper escaped death. But her real savior is Duke. Let’s give credit where credit's due.
Not that long ago, they saved him from a shelter, and now, Duke has repaid that debt twenty fold. We can’t think of a better way to say thank you.
