All dogs hold a special place in the hearts of their owners, but a 6-year-old German Shepherd named Sadie is one of those extra special dogs who make international headlines. The heroic dog did something for her owner that saved his life recently. When the man (named Brian) collapsed in his New Jersey home after suffering a stroke, Sadie did something completely and utterly extraordinary.

Not only did she stay right by his side, but Sadie licked her owner’s face to keep him awake, dragged him across the room to his cellphone, and waited by his side while Brian called for help. Ironically, Sadie came into Brian’s life just a few months earlier. She was surrendered to the Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge when her previous owner moved. She was confused and seemingly “lost” at the shelter since she lost the only family she ever knew and loved.

According to the refuge, “Sadie is a loyal dog, but nervous and protective with new people, making her a more difficult placement. Just a few months ago, Brian came into Sadie’s life and decided to adopt her. Though her bio noted that she was especially nervous with men, Brian felt a special bond with Sadie, as he valued her intelligence, hesitancy to trust and fierce loyalty once she did form that trust.”

Brian is currently recovering in a rehab center, and Sadie is staying with family members until his discharge. Congratulations on being an amazing hero and saving your dad’s life, Sadie. For more on this wonderful dog, press play on the video below.
