Faithful Golden Retrievers Save Their Owner’s Life

1

When 76-year-old Judy Muhe, who suffers from Parkinson’s disease, fell in her Palmdale, Florida home, she had no one else to help her but her two good-natured golden retrievers.

Even though they couldn’t have called for help, the two loyal dogs did everything they could to keep their elderly owner alive. She spent two days lying on the kitchen floor, slipping in and out of consciousness, and managed to survive the ordeal with a lot of help from her best friends.

Namely, 10-year-old Higgins and 4-year-old Dodger stood by her side for the entire time and kept her warm and safe, using their bodies as substitute beds. They were completely aware that their human was in pain, and started barking as soon as they heard someone at the door.

That someone was Muhe’s close friend Kathy Jacobs, who had called her several times and decided to check up on her since no one was answering the phone. As soon as Jacobs, who had the key to Muhe’s home, opened the door, Higgins and Dodger ran to her and showed her the way to their injured owner.

Here’s what Muhe, who is now recovering from the incident, told ABC News about her faithful pups:

“The main thing was they let me know I was not alone. Higgins] laid up against my back, and Dodger laid on my feet and legs … I don’t know what I would have done without them … I just love my dogs so much.”
