Loyal Dog's Quick Actions Saved Man's Life
Something was missing from Mary Friend's life... a dog! In 2007, the 55-year-old adopted Looby Loo, a 9-year-old German Shepherd. Her life would never be the same again. When Mary fell in love with Toby she wondered how Looby Loo would adjust.
“The bond between them was instant. Looby Loo wouldn’t take her eyes off Toby and wanted to be near him at all times. You hear of pets being totally devoted to owners, but the bond that Looby Loo forged with Toby was instant and unbreakable,” Mary said.
Toby is a diabetic and has to take medication. One night, Mary was woken up by Looby Loo barking and wouldn't stop. She woke to find Toby slipping into a diabetic coma. She called the paramedics for help.
“Throughout the whole episode, Looby Loo didn’t leave Toby’s side – she was desperately nudging his arms and legs and licking his face. She knew that he was in danger and was trying to help him as best she could.”
If Looby Loo didn't wake up Mary, who knows what could have happened to Toby. This loyal dog is a true hero! She is being honored by vet charity PDSA. The 9 year-old German Shepherd has been awarded the PDSA Commendation, an award that recognizes acts of outstanding devotion by pets.
