A dog saves the life of a baby girl who had stopped breathing in the middle of the night

A dog is always a blessing in the house: they are not only lovely and loyal companions, but they may also save your life. We’ve all heard stories about dogs protecting their owners or alerting them to danger.

One lady is now hailing her dog as a hero for saving her baby’s life by warning the parents before the youngster stopped breathing.

Kelly Andrew of Boston, Massachusetts, is the proud owner of Henry, a Boston terrier. The dog recently began behaving badly in the middle of the night, breaking into their crib and waking Kelly’s kid.

Kelly claims she had grown “tired” of her dog’s antics, especially since the baby had been sick.

However, she soon realised her baby wasn’t breathing.

Kelly realised Henry wasn’t raising a commotion, but rather was trying to save the baby’s life, when her daughter was rushed to the hospital.


Something was wrong, and the dog immediately knew it. Henry most certainly saved the baby’s life by keeping her awake and alerting the parents, allowing her to obtain medical treatment.

Kelly commented on Twitter, “I don’t know what would have happened if he hadn’t woken her.” “Dogs aren’t something we deserve.”

According to the mother, the infant spent the night in the hospital and is now “doing much better.”

Kelly also praises her devoted canine companion Henry, who “bravely held the fort all night despite his fear of the dark.”

She also hailed the Connecticut Children’s Hospital’s emergency room staff for being “actual heroes” in assisting her daughter.

However, once the tale went viral, it was excellent dog Henry who received a lot of attention. People were astounded by the dog’s instincts, and some even shared their own similar stories, demonstrating how life-saving dogs can be… even when they appear to be behaving badly.

We couldn’t figure out for the longest time why my service dog kept going in to my parents room several times a night sniffing my dad’s face and nudging him repeatedly,” one woman replied. “They always pushed her away and she would still circle back. She stopped as soon as he got his pacemaker.”

“I’m chronically ill. There’s been many a time I’ve gone to the hospital because one of my dogs has started sniffing and paying attention to a body part and alerting something’s wrong,” another wrote. “Dogs are heroes
