Dog Saves Baby’s Life After Persistently Alerting Parents That She Wasn’t Breathing


A family’s Boston Terrier is being hailed a hero after he saved their baby’s life.

Jeff and Kelly Dowling of Connecticut thought something was wrong with the 8-year-old pup, Henry, since he began acting weird.

While their 9-month-old baby slept in her nursery, Henry kept opening the door by head-butting it and standing in there. Kelly grew frustrated and kept shooing him out of the room so he wouldn’t wake the baby, but Henry continued to keep going in the room.

Since Henry was so persistent, the Dowlings finally went into the nursery to see why he was doing this. That’s when they discovered that their baby was having difficulty breathing.

The baby, who already had a cold, began to turn blue since she couldn’t clear her airway. They immediately rushed her to the hospital, where they were thankfully able to get her breathing again.

If it weren’t for Henry’s quick-thinking and persistent efforts, their baby might not have survived.

“I don’t know what would have happened if he hadn’t woken her,” Kelly wrote on Twitter. “We don’t deserve dogs.”

The Dowling say they’re going to spoil Henry a little extra now. They let him sleep in bed with them, and he will even get a steak in the near future.
