Shannon Lorio lost control of her vehicle late at night while driving on a rural road. On impact, she was flung from the wreck on impact.
The woman was severely hurt and unable to move. Lorio knew there was no one on the deserted roads who could aid her. But suddenly she felt the breath of a massive creature on her face. Her guardian angel was a German Shepherd that appeared out of nowhere.
“I’M UNSURE WHEN I CAME TO, BUT WHEN I DID COME TO, I FELT HIS STRONG PRESENCE.” I COULD FEEL HIS BREATH. THE PUPPY… I’M NOT SURE HOW HE FOUND ME, BUT I’M THANKFUL THAT HE DID,” LORIO SAID.
Then, the woman passed away and when she came into her feels again, she felt as if she were being dragged out by a dog. The brave dog snatched the woman by the hood of her coat and hauled her over 100 feet to the road’s edge. Finally, a car passed by, and the woman was taken to the nearest hospital.
“THIS DOG, HE DID IT ALL. LORIO SAID, “HE’S AN AMAZING ANIMAL, HE REALLY IS.”
When Lario had fully recovered, she attempted to locate her guardian angel, but he had vanished. She eventually discovered him and took him to the Humane Society. Hero was the dog’s name, and he now has a lifelong home with rescue trainer Heidy Drawdy. Hero is now a licensed search and rescue dog, something he excels at naturally!
LORIO SAID, “I TOLD HIM YOU’LL ALWAYS BE MY HERO. THAT’S WHAT EVERYONE BEGAN CALLING HIM. AND THAT’S WHERE HIS NAME COME FROM.”
