A loyal dog is responsible for heroically saving the life of its 88-year-old owner. A rescued dog named Sandy warned the garbage collector and eventually led him to his owner. He fell down the stairs and couldn’t move!
A few years ago, Gwendra Johnson of Glendale, California decided to give a stray dog an eternal home. Sandy has been a loyal and protective dog ever since, but Gwendra knew little about the dog she had just saved would pay off the debt as well.
Despite being 88 years old, Gwendra is still in great shape and she lives alone, just with her loyal furry friend. But her legs aren’t the old ones and sometimes cause her some problems. Just like when Gwendo left her house and suddenly fell to the ground last summer. Fortunately, she wasn’t injured, but she couldn’t climb the alley. Due to the long distance from their driveway to the street, it was fairly unlikely that anyone would see her. But almost an hour later, Gwendo found her plumber and she knew this was her chance. Still, the man was too far to hear the old woman’s scream. It was when Sundi played!
As a man known as Kirk White was dragging a trash can into the main alley, Sandy approached him and began to bark violently. Kirk, an employee at Glendale Integrated Waste Management, had met Sandy several times, so he knew he wasn’t an aggressive dog. So he thought something had happened!
“The way he barked was,’I have something to show you. I want you to come here and see something,'” the man later explained for NBC Los Angeles.
Kirk decided to follow Sundi, and he soon found Gwendra lying in the alley directly in front of her step door. The man then helped her wake up and confirmed that she was intact. Thankfully, the dog’s efforts saved the woman’s life, with Kirk’s decision to “listen” to him!
“When I saw him, I told Sundi,’You’re going to catch him,’ so he did,” Gwendra explained later. “He was a good boy and Kurt came to the driveway at just the right time.”
